Homemade Playdoh

Published on: December 30, 2013

I’ve been told umpteen times that I possess the BEST homemade Playdoh recipe this side of the Cascades.

Whipping up a batch of the squishy stuff is a great way to pass twenty minutes a drizzly May afternoon that’s supposed to be springish but, because you live in Seattle, is not.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 cup of white flour
  • ¼ cup of salt
  • 1 cup of water
  • 3 teaspoons of Cream of Tartar
  • 1 Tablespoon of vegetable oil

Cook above ingredients on a medium flame until it forms a soft ball.

Mix in color (if desired).

Turn out on a dry surface to cool.

Store in airtight container or plastic bag.

One caveat: Your three-year-old will probably find this concoction to be delicious. Even with all the salt. Yick.
