Day 6 : Playdoh

playSlap boredom in the face with this DIY!
Kids are always looking for something to do and this one is satisfying.




Credit: This came from and was the best recipe I’ve seen. I’ve made it 3 times and each time it’s better. The only criticism I have about this recipe is that it’s a one day play-doh. Once it goes into the tupperware (with a top or not) it gets too sticky the next day and is a mess. I tried the recommendations on the instructable site to dry it out but I had no success. So, have the most fun with this as you can squeeze in a day.

UPDATE:  (10/12/2014)
In efforts to keep the play-doh fresh and keep playing the next day we put it in a tupperware and in the fridge.  We opened it the next day and let it get to room temp. Once it was room temp it was GOOD. Yay!


Since the instructables post is nicely illustrated I won’t re-state the facts.
For details with photos visit the original posing site.
  Here is your ingredient list.

What You Need:

2 cups flour

2 cups warm water

1 cup salt

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 tablespoon cream of tartar (optional for elasticity)

food coloring

** The most important part of this DIY is the cooking time. Keep cooking until it comes away from the pot and is dry like play doh. If you’re unsure, keeping cooking it.
