Homemade Playdough

This is a cooked recipe. I find I get better results with this one, but it takes a bit longer.

  • 2 cups plain/all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup salt

  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil

  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar

  • 2 cups of water

  • Put all dry ingredients in a saucepan.

  • Add water and oil.

  • Cook slowly and stir all the time. As it gets hot it will begin to thicken up.

  • Divide and Knead on a floured surface

  • Add coloring and Essential oils and work in.

It will look marbled at first but keep going.

I used about 20 ish drops of food coloring and 10-15 drops of the following Essential Oils: Lavender for purple, Ambient Rose for Pink, Rosemary for Green and Fighting Five for Blue.

When the kids are done playing I will store them in plastic bags in the fridge.

As there are no preservatives in it, if mould sets in throw it out and make some more. :)

But does it pass the toddler taste test?

Lol... it should be fine... I hope, the heavy salt and the smelly EO is a handy deterrent. Once or twice is fine and more then enough to deter future eating endeavors and not make anyone sick. :)

I saw your storms yesterday, you are okay right?

Me and mine were stranded for a few days as we waited for water to drain off. We got supplies though. My neighbor took some flood damage but I'm higher up so none for me. House is very very damp though and I'm trying to dry it out as fast as possible. There was so much water it was wicking up through the concrete on my bottom level.

One can still hear all the water rushing through the storm drains under the street. Pretty constant quiet roar.
