Homemade Play Dough

Homemade Play Dough

I’ve been making this recipe for a few years now. So easy and so simple. No cooking required, just whip up all the ingredients and in a few minutes you’ll have a batch of homemade play dough for your little ones to get stuck into!


  • 1 cup of Plain Flour (do not use gluten free, it won’t work!)
  • 1/2 cup of Salt
  • 2 tablespoons of Cream of Tar Tar
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil (we use sunflower oil)
  • Food Colouring
  • 1 cup of boiling water


Mix the sifted flour, salt, vegetable oil and cream of tar tar together in a large mixing bowl.

Pour a cup of boiling water into a measuring cup and add a drop or two of desired food colouring, mix together, then add boiling water to flour mixture, stir well until combined. Knead with hands until dough like texture occurs.

Keeps for a couple of months in an air tight container.

Have fun creating this with the kids BUT please take care using boiling water around babies, toddlers and children.
