Homemade Playdough

Little Miss and I decided we needed to make some playdough so we pulled out the recipe my mom used when we were growing up and got to work. Although this recipe does not have anything harmful in it, it doesn’t taste good either so I wouldn’t consider it edible. I do love the texture of this recipe though which is why I always go back to it.

The best part about this recipe is how easy it is. Dump all the ingredients into a saucepan, heat while stirring until it form a clump and then you simply roll it on the counter and knead it a bit and then you’re ready to play as soon as it cools. (maybe 3-5 minutes, tops) SO easy and so fun that the kids get to say they MADE their playdough, they love it!

We had so much fun rolling, cutting, forming, shaping, and then…building a snowman. Zoey was very captivated by how I made one…

So glad I had the camera ready to capture her reaction when I turned it around to show her…

She thought it was the silliest thing. Typical Arizona girl I guess. Then she decided to make her own and it’s just the cutest little thing ever. She did a good job and then took the “coal”, nose, arms and eyes off of mine to add to hers.

If it’s a cold, chilly day and you want something to do with your child that takes very little effort but is so much fun, this is a great choice! Stores nicely in a gallon bag too so it entertains longer than just one sitting.
