Super Squishy Playdough 0

Need something fun to do with the kids this weekend? I just tried an amazing playdough recipe I found on Pinterest!

This stuff is super smooth and squishy. We haven’t stopped playing with it!


I made this over 4 months ago and it is still soft! Crazy, right? This is the BEST recipe ever!

Super Squishy Playdough- Best recipe I have found!

Make Your Own Playdough:

1 cup flour
1 cup water
1/4 cup salt
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 Tbls. vegetable oil
food coloring

Just mix everything together in a pot on medium heat and presto- the perfect playdough! Once it turns into a nice little ball, just pull it out and kneed in your food coloring.

Of course kiddo ended up mixing all of the colors together! He has always been fascinated with how colors can change… “Mommy, what does blue and yellow make?”

Are you a keep-the-colors-separate kind of parent or do your kids mix everything together? Have you tried this recipe? Did it work for you?

    Wow 4 months and still going? That sounds great! I am a color separate kind of person, lol, but I let my kids mix it up if that’s what they want to do!

      Yep. I can’t believe it is still soft either. Kiddo has even left it outside for about a week. Love this stuff!
