Make Your Own Play Dough!

Make Your Own Play Dough!

by Martha Scully

What kid doesn’t like playing with play dough? Want to make your own in just a few minutes? Now you can, thanks to Anna at! She combines flour, oil, salt, cream of tartar, and water to make the dough, adding food colouring to make it whatever colour you want; she also recommends adding some glycerin for shine, but that’s optional.  There’s no cooking involved and it lasts for weeks!

Nannies, babysitters, keep this in your back pocket for when you need a new activity! Get the full directions at, and don’t be afraid to make it your own and experiment with the ingredients.
