This is the recipe I have had the most success with and doesn’t leave your hands feeling gross. Store playdough in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
2 cups of all-purpose flour
½ cup of salt
2 tablespoons of cream of tartar
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 ¼ cups of boiling water
a few drops Food coloring (optional)
a few drops of an essential oil to add scent (optional)
- In a bowl mix the flour, salt, olive oil and cream of tartar. The oil may make a few clumps in the mixture that’s OK.
- In a pot boil the water and add an essential oil of your choice and the food coloring to the boiling water.

- Use a spoon to mix up the ingredients until the dough is combined.
