As an Earthie Mama, I don’t want my children playing with commercially made playdough. So, I went on a mission to find the best Playdough recipe and best way to color the play dough with natural food coloring. I am so excited to share it with you!
Instead of going out and buying commercial Playdough, try making it at home with your children. It is inexpensive. non-toxic and fun to make! Playing with Playdough is good for expanding a child’s imagination and developing fine motor skills. This activity can be hours of entertainment. Making the dough, making the food coloring and hours of playtime plus it is a great way to spend quality time with your child while filling them up with innocent Joy!

- 1 cup HOT WATER or Colored Water
(to make natural colorings click HERE)
- 2 Tbsp SALT
- 2 Tbsp CREAM OF TARTAR
- 2 Tbsp. COOKING OIL
To make natural food coloring CLICK HERE. It is a good idea to make the natural food coloring first and then to use the colored water with this recipe to make a colored Playdough.
- Add ingredients together. To make dough a color use the water from the natural food coloring recipe.
Stir continuously until mixed completely.
Place dough on a floured cutting board and knead (If it is sticky, keep adding flour).
Thank you for joining me on my journey!
