No-Cook Playdough

Perfect Rainy Day Activity!

October 27, 2010

I love to grab the kids and make a big batch of playdough and have enjoyed using this no-cook recipe for years! We choose colors based on holidays if it's a special time of year. I'll add some vanilla to make it smell yummy or pumpkin spice or peppermint extract at Christmas time! Store in a ziploc bag and it'll last for a long time. Because you don't have to cook this one or use boiling water, the kids can jump right in and help out.

  • 1 cup water
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cup salt
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • Food coloring, if desired
  • Vanilla or other scent, if desired

Combine ingredients in large bowl and mix. Add more flour if mixture is too sticky. Store in a plastic ziploc bag.
