Favorite Play Dough Recipe

We love play dough and have a few favourites up our sleeves! This is our favorite play dough recipe and by far the one we make most often!

The Recipe:

This makes a big tennis ball size…

Quick and Easy Method:

  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a big pot and then put it onto the stove – medium heat!
  2. At first, the mixture is quite runny, but after a few minutes on the stove, it forms a dough.
  3. Keep string continuously, make sure to stir the bottom of the pot so it does not burn.
  4. In about 2 minutes your mixture will be like dough.
  5. Take it out, allow it to cool and knead like bread a few times.
  6. Divide the dough into as many colours as you want and add food colouring!
  7. Food colouring goes a long way – so start off with a tiny amount (a toothpick tip)
  8. Done!

Looking for more play dough inspiration?

To this recipe, you can add scents – as we did here when we made Rose Scented Dough or Peppermint Dough or this Orange-Scented Dough…

We play with dough all the time so have set up plenty of activities surrounding it: invitations to play, like this fall-themed dough table or this play dough printing.

When we get to the end of the life of the dough – as in ‘it is getting old and this is the last time we are going to play with it…” we “cook” with it…

You can theme play dough to any event or holiday – as we did here for Christmas or these Halloween Play Dough Monsters…

You can even add glitter!!!
