This easy playdough recipe smells amazing, is ready in minutes and is calming for kids.
Playdough Recipe Ingredients:
- 2.75 cups Flour
- 1 cup salt
- 2 tbsp Cream of tartar
- 1.5-2 cups of hot water (add 1.5 cups first then stir and add more if needed)
- 2 tbsp. oil
- 30 drops Lavender Essential Oil
- Optional: food coloring
Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl & blend together with a wire whisk.
Then add the 2 cups of hot water, oil and stir gently just to mix the water around but not fully incorporate it (if you stir too much it’ll get really goopy and yucky).
Kneed the dough until the water & oils are fully incorporated, add food coloring if desired.
The finished playdough will last about 2 months. Once it starts to dry out and not stick well it’s time to make a new batch. Divide the finished playdough ball in half and use different colors or store half in a ziplock bag for later use.
