DIY :: Play-Doh

When I taught pre-school, the teachers would go in a rotation to make our own Play-Doh for our ankle biters.  I mean, a school could go broke if they had to keep buying it and the stuff dries out so make it!  I couldn't find a recipe like the one we used, but this one is really close.  The only thing we didn't use was the Kool-Aid.  I'm sure it makes the play-doh smell good, but that also seems like it would lead to a lot more eating of it than playing with it.  ;-)


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup salt2 t cream of tartar2 packages of Kool Aid (don't use purple, it turns grey)
  • Food Coloring (optional)
  • 1 T oil
  • 1 cup water

Cook all ingredients over medium heat until it forms a ball (5-10 minutes).  You can enhance the colors by using food coloring if you like.  That's it!  Eazy Peezy Lemon Squeezy.

Have fun & get messy!
