Homemade Playdough Recipe
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup salt
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1.5 tablespoons liquid cooking oil (I used olive oil, since that's all I had, but anything will work!)
  • Food coloring
  • 6-8 drops of essential oils of your choice (my favorite essential oils)
  1. In a sauce pan, stir the flour, salt, and cream of tartar together.
  2. Add in the water, cooking oil, and food coloring and mix until smooth.
  3. Turn on the heat to medium-low, and stir until the mixture forms a ball.
  4. Once the mixture has reached playdough-consistency, remove it from the heat and allow it to cool for 3-4 minutes.
  5. Knead in the essential oils of your choice.
  6. Store in an air-tight container. (Storing it in the fridge will make it last even longer!)
