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.
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
1 cup flour
- In a small bowl mix the water and the salt, then add the oil and the food coloring, stir.
- 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.)
- Add glitter if you like.
- Stir in one cup of flour. Add a little more flour if the dough is not firm enough or if it’s sticky.
