Peppermint Playdough

I am a huge fan of homemade playdough. It's great because it's like two projects in one -- first you get to make it, and then you get to play with it! 

You can have your little ones help stir the mix together before adding the boiling water and then knead it once the water has cooled. Store in an airtight container in the fridge to stay fresh (my most recent batch lasted three weeks!). You can skip the peppermint oil if your little one thinks it smells a little too tasty. Have fun!

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 drops of peppermint oil
  • Food coloring
  1. Mix and knead together. 
  2. Mold into your favorite shapes!
