You will find instructions here for both the non-edible and edible types of playdough.Non-Edible Playdough
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 cup salt
1 1/2 – 2 cups boiling water
3 – 4 Tablespoons vegetable oil
Food coloring or DRY Kool Aid powder
Combine ingredients with boiling water and mix well. As you knead it, the dough will get smoother. Make individual balls of dough. Press your thumb into the center of the ball, add a couple of drops of food coloring or Kool Aid and pinch shut. Place each ball in paper cup in case of leakage and cover with a piece of wax paper to help prevent drying until you’re ready to let the children knead the dough and discover what color playdough they have.
Use can use playdough as an object lesson. What ever your hands find to do, do it with all your heart.
Caution! make sure none of your children are allergic to any of the ingredients in this dough, such as the peanut butter.
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
1 cup powdered milk
Knead until smooth. This can get quite sticky so have plenty of baby wipes on hand.
