This recipe is a favorite of mine because you throw everything into a pan, stir over medium heat, and boom… you have Play Dough.
This allows my 2.5 year old to help measure and dump the ingredients while the pan is cool, and then stir the ingredients while the pan is hot. My attention can be 100% on him during the “heat” portion of the recipe (nothing else has to get added) and he can watch his Play Dough go from a liquid to a solid!
Most of these ingredients are staples found in the pantry, and I ordered the cream of tartar & food coloring off of Amazon. The food coloring is not necessary, you can always go without and have some “all-natural” white Play Dough.
That’s it! This Play Dough is soft and pliable, and you get a LOT for a low spend. Depending on the day, sometimes we will split the dough into 2 (or more) sections after step 3 and add different colors to get 2-4 colors from one batch.
Thank goodness for easy recipes.
