PlayDough Mania

Basic Play Dough-1 c water, 1 c flour, 1/2 c salt/ 2tbsp cream of tarter and 1 tbsp. vegetable oil. Pink and red are a must. With glitter and perhaps cinnamon to spice it up.

There is a silky & stretchy play dough from LaughingKidsLearn that looks fun: 1 c conditioner, 2 c cornstarch. I have a few opened-long-ago travel-sized bottles of conditioner I am going to use. Glitter optional. Wait, glitter is never an option, it’s a MUST!

Gluten-Free Baking Soda Play Dough from FrugalFarmWife: 2 c baking soda, 1 c cornstarch, 1 1/2 c water & 1 tbsp. oil. Mix ing over a sauce pan over med heat, stirring constantly. Baking soda will fizz before it starts to thicken. Fun! Take it off the heat as soon as it’s thick enough to start wanting to stick together. Let cool, paritally covered until it can be handled. Separate into balls and color. I used wilton icing gel colors left over from my cake decorating days and really loved the results.

Frozen Play Dough from time2saveworkshops.  needed: 1 c flour ¼ c salt 1 ½ Tbsp  cream of tartar 1 Tbsp  vegetable oil 1 c boiling water Blue food coloring 1 tablespoon of fine glitter (white, silver, and blue are perfect)

Bring water to a boil. Combine all ingredients with the exception of the food coloring and glitter into a bowl. Mix until a paste forms. Continue to knead until soft but not tacky. Then, cook on stove for 4-5 minutes over medium heat, stirring constantly. Add a few drops of blue food coloring and start kneading so the color distributes.  Just sprinkle the glitter on and knead well. Frosted snow play dough can be stored in an air tight container or zip lock bag for several weeks

Crayon Play Dough from SugarAunts

chop up 2 and a half crayons. I

In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients-3 c flour, 1 1/2 c salt, 2 Tbsp. cream of tartar

Heat 2 Tbsp of oil in a pan. Add the chopped crayons. Stir until the crayons are completely melted. Slowly stir in 2 c of water while stirring. Certain types of crayons will either make a clumpy purply goopy looking liquid. Other types will make a smooth liquid once the water is added.  Just keep stirring.

Slowly, stir in the dry ingredients. The dough will pull together in a ball over the heat. Once the dough pulls together, dump it out onto a cutting board or counter. Let the dough cool until you can tolerate kneading. Knead the dough for a few minutes until smooth. Note~ The waxy texture of this dough will create a spa-like experience while kneading.
