No-Cook Play Dough

We made this no-cook play dough just for fun, but you can use it for models, crafts, and art class as well.   It’s very smooth, very workable and soft, but non-sticky.

How to make no-cook play dough.

Since it’s no cook the kids could help me and I gave them each their own bowl to make a personal size amount of play dough.

No-Cook Play Dough Recipe

1/4 cup warm tap water
1/8 cup salt
2 tablespoons cooking oil
food coloring
1 cup flour

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl mix the water and the salt, then add the oil and the food coloring, stir.
  2. Now add any scents you like (cinnamon, vanilla, and maple will color your dough or you can add Kool-aid, essential oils or mint extract. If you choose Kool-aid, you don’t need the food coloring.)
  3. Add glitter if you like.
  4. Stir in one cup of flour. Add a little more flour if the dough is not firm enough or if it’s sticky.
