DIY Playdough – Craft Activities with Lil Miss Chelsea

DO IT YOURSELF PLAYDOUGH

We wanted to try to make the different playdoughs to test out different textures. First we made one out of Flour, Salt, Cream of Tartar, Veggie Oil and Water. That one seems to be drying out our hands as we played with it. So we wanted to try a different kind. This time we used hair conditioner and corn starch. Both of these recipes were fun to make and a bit messy. The first one wasn’t as bad as the second. I was getting corn starch all over.  Chelsea enjoyed playing with the playdoughs. Smashing them between her fingers, making hand prints, etc. It has been 3 days since we made our playdoughs….Recipe #1 is going strong still soft and easy to play with. While Recipe #2 is flaky and falling apart. Why don’t you test them out for yourself and see which one stays for you and which one doesn’t last. We really liked Recipe #2 because of the softness at first but it stinks that its so flaky now.

Recipe #1

Ingredients: 1 Cup Flour, 1/2 Cup Salt, 1 Tablespoon Cream of Tatar, 1 Tablespoon Veggie Oil & 1 Cup Water

Directions: Mix it all up then add in a drop of food coloring of your choice to make it colorful.

Recipe #2

Ingredients: 1 Cup Conditioner and 2 Cups Corn Starch.

Directions: Mix it all up then add in a drop of food coloring of your choice to make it colorful. This one was messy.
