Play Dough Recipe

Filed under: Bellingham local,local,Pacific Northwest — Tags: , — Bellinghamster @ 9:40 pm

Play dough is not a food, but this is edible if you’re REALLY hungry:

  • 2 cups flour
    1 cup salt
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    2 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
    2 cups cold water
    Food coloring

Combine flour, salt, vegetable oil, cream of tartar and water in a medium saucepan.
Cook uncovered over medium heat until the dough is the consistency of mashed potatoes (5 min).
Divide the dough into 4 equal parts;add about 10 drops of food coloring to each portion and knead the dough to distribute the color.

The play dough can be stored in an airtight plastic bag for a long time.

Have fun with it! My kids worked it for about 2 hours from start to finish – pounding is therapeutic
