Play Dough 手作りプレイドー

Last week while cleaning out a closet I came across a bunch of clay that I have been saving for a rainy day. While the little guy was very excited and wanted to give it a try he had a tough time due to the hard consistency of the clay. We have solved the problem with homemade play dough.
Here is a simple recipe that I found online:
Easy Peasy No Cook Play Dough!
2 cups of plain flour 2カップ フラワー 
4 tablespoons of ‘cream of tartar’ 4大さじ クリームオブタータ 
2 tablespoons of cooking oil 2大さじ サラダ油
1 cup of salt 1カップ 塩
2 cups of boiling water 2カップ お湯
Food coloring 食品着色料

Just pop it all in a mixing bowl and mix!
It might not come together at first, but keep on mixing, it will eventually take on that nice play doughey texture.
Try adding bits and pieces like glitter and sand to make it even more fun!


We added food coloring and extract/essence to make a variety of colors and scents. After playing keep the play dough in an air tight container for next time!
