Hey party people!! I am beyond stoked to share today’s recipe with you! I honestly can’t believe I haven’t shared it yet. I know there are a million play dough recipes out on the internet.. but this one is tried and tested and honestly amazing! I typically double the batch, split it into four parts and dye them each a different color and then put each one in an air tight container and they will last for months! Every mom needs this homemade playdough recipe, so let’s get down to the details.
What you need:
Make sure you have your paper towels handy throughout this process (Viva Vantage are the BEST get awesome coupons here) because things can get messy!
- 2 cups water
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup salt
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- 2 TBS vegetable oil
- 1 TBS powdered Alum
Add all ingredients to a large saucepan and begin stirring with a whisk over medium heat.
As mixture begins to thicken, you will need to switch to a wooden spoon, and continue stirring.
When the mixture becomes too think to stir, remove it from your pan and knead in food coloring! I like to split mine up and do different colors but you could also just do it in one big lump!
Store in an air tight container & have fun!
My little ones love to help make this play dough.. especially the kneading part! I was totally shocked at how good my 3 year old was at it the first time I let him try!
So what do you think? Will you give it a try?!
