Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon cream of tartar
  • 1 cup kosher salt
  • Natural food coloring

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Mix the flour, oil, cream of tartar and salt in a medium saucepan. Turn the burner to medium-low heat. Slowly add 2 cups of water. Cook and stir until all the ingredients blend together and the dough is stiff and dry, about 5 minutes. Pour the dough out onto wax paper and let cool.

When cool, knead the dough until smooth and feels like play dough. Separate the dough into 3 sections. Wearing plastic gloves, add 4 to 5 drops of food coloring to each section and knead until the color is incorporated. Store the play dough in an airtight container.

Cook's Note

Use beet, spinach or carrot juice as dye alternative. If play dough dries out, add water.
