007 - Homemade Play-Doh

365 Challenge 2017 - making something everyday (trying) and posting about it.

My son's preschool has a different set of parents making a batch of homemade Play-Doh every week so the school always has fresh batches to use. It was our week, so I helped make one of the three batches.

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of salt
  • 4 teaspoons of cream of tartar
  • 2 cups of water
  • 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 1. Stir the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • 2. Boil the water and oil.
  • 3. Pour the water and oil into the dry ingredients and mix with a spoon.
  • 4. Eventually knead the dough with hands, though it may be quite hot still.
