The Softest Playdough

There are SO many playdough recipes out there.  We have tried several of them, here is our favorite.  I prefer non cook playdough because my kids get inpatient waiting for it to cool off. So I prefer using hot water because it doesn’t get as hot.

  • 1 cup of flour
  • ¼ cup of salt
  • ½ cup of hot water
  • 2tbs cream of tartar (yes I do own a 1lb bag of cream of tartar)
  • 2tbs coconut oil (may substitute for vegetable oil) I ALWAYS have coconut oil in my pantry
  • Food grade gel/dye (optional) we ALWAYS have tons of food coloring  I love the gel coloring too.

To make this cream of tartar playdough, add your dry ingredients into a bowl and mix.  Seriously, so easy.

OPTIONAL: We love to add essential oils to playdough just to add a fun scent element!!
