Natural Homemade Play Dough Recipe

If you have toddlers, you know that they have a everything in the mouth phase that’s extremely stressful! This play dough is natural and food-based, and I don’t use any dyes either! I keep it extremely simple. The best part? I only make it about once a year. Yep! As long as you keep it sealed it lasts forever!


-2 cups salt

-2 cups flour

-1 cup cornstarch

-2 cups water

-4 tablespoon cream of tartar

-2 tablespoons oil


How to make it:

01. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan over medium-low heat.

02. Stir continuously until it forms into a ball. Turn stove off.

03. Once it’s cooled, separate into 8 separate balls.

04. Store each one in an air-tight container (I use round pyrex dishes).
