Halloween Themed Play Dough Recipe!

October 11, 2020

Homemade playdough is great because you can make a huge batch in 10 minutes that will last you months and it’s free from chemicals. Also – super cheap! 

Here’s what you need: 

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup salt
  • 4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tbs of vegetable oil 
  • Essential oils or food coloring if desired (I always add these though as it adds a super sensory element to your dough!)

I bought cream of tartare on Amazon. I got a huge 1kg bag for £12 but I did see you could buy 100g for £3, which would still last about 3 or 4 batches!

Essential Oil Ideas:

How to make the homemade playdough: 

Combine all ingredients into a saucepan and stir together on low heat. Stir constantly until a dough begins to form and pulls away from the edges of the pan. It doesn’t take long! If you’re using food coloring and essential oils add a few drops of each before you remove from heat. If you’re making more than one color with your playdough then wait to add the food coloring. Remove from pan and place on the counter to cool. Gently knead like you would bread. I add extra flour at this stage if I need too. I then section into balls and add food colouring at this stage.

Store in a zip lock bag. Squeeze out as much air as possible to make it last longer. I currently have a batch that’s 6 months old and still going strong!
