Homemade Cooked Play Dough Recipe:

Recipe for 1 batch/color:
  • 1 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp cream of Tartar
  • 2 Tbsp oil (any cooking oil)
  • Wilton Gel coloring blue and green
  1. Add everything to a cooking pot and mix over low heat.
  2. When it has formed a ball remove from heat.
  3. Add green Wilton gel(icing colors) into one batch and blue Wilton gel into the other.
  4. The easy way is to make two separate batches of this recipe
 This process usually takes approximately five minutes. Let it cool for 5-10 minutes before play.
As far as making it into the Earth that is up to you and your children’s ages. If you have older children maybe they can make their own Earth model with the help of a picture. If you have younger children you can make the Earth up for them ahead of time, so it is ready to be explored.
