How to Make Homemade Playdough

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!

    (to make natural colorings click HERE)
  • 2 Tbsp SALT

Directions:

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!
