DIY Playdough

DIY Playdough


For this activity we will be making our own playdough!

We will be using only 5 ingredients and there’s no need to bake anything! This playdough can be molded into shapes/objects and then baked in the oven for about 5 minutes at a low temperature or it can be put into ziplocks in the fridge for storage. It should last a few weeks!

Enjoy :)

Materials List

  • ½ cup salt
  • 1 cup ½ flour
  • 1 cup boiling/very hot water
  • Multiple bowls (if doing multiple colors)
  • Spoon to mix with 
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar 
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Food coloring


  1. Mix all dry ingredients together (0:52)
  2. Add hot/boiling water to bowl and oil and mix into dry ingredients, mix well (1:22)
  3. If you would like to make multiple colors of play dough) separate dough into different bowls, add food coloring and mix well (3:27)
