Ingredients for No Cook Clove Scented Autumn Play Dough



  1. Add all the dry ingredients (flour, salt and cream of tartar) together and stir.
  2. If you are going to add color to the play dough, add the food coloring to the cup of boiling water first…
  3. Add the first cup of water to the dry ingredients along with the oil and give it a stir. If you want to add the optional glycerin – now is the time. This really is an optional ingredient!
  4. Add the remaining 1/2 cup boiling water now, a little at a time until all the flour is absorbed. I usually use almost all the water…
  5. Wait for it to cool to warm and knead like bread.
  6. I added in the clove oil as I was kneading it – I added about 10 drops – up to you to decide how strong you want it.
  7. NOTE: If you want to make 2 different colors (or more) from one batch of ingredients –  you are going to have to knead in the food coloring after it is finished – like we did in here in our ‘cook it’ – best play dough in the world recipe! You make a ball of white play dough and then divide it into as many colors as you wish to make.


This play Dough will keep in the fridge for weeks – months even – if stored in an air tight container in the fridge.


Clove Scented No Cook Play dough. Smells just like Autumn! The kids will love this!
