I have discovered the most amazing recipe for playdough. It is so easy to make. It is safe for kids if they happen to eat it. It smells great. And, best of all, it takes forever to dry out. Seriously. We’re going on 4 years now with the same playdough and we’re only replacing it because it was accidentally left out over night. An hour won’t cause drying, but 12 apparently did. So, today, Kayden (my 2 year-old) and I made playdough together. I share it with you so you can have years and years of playdough fun.
Stir together all ingredients and heat in a saucepan for 3-5 minutes over medium heat. When playdough gets super thick and stays entirely clumped to the spoon, you’re done (see photo).
Remove playdough from pan. It will be hot, but an adult can carefully knead it in their hands. I wouldn’t let a child do this since they’ll likely burn themselves. Mold it into a ball and let cool (about 5-10 minutes).
Have Fun!! Kayden couldn’t stop smelling his new “Fruit Punch” red playdough! Make all kinds of colors and scents! Total Time to make 5-10 minutes. Total playtime: Endless.
