Easy Play-dough Recipes

Easy Play-dough Recipes


Today, I am posting on how to make easy play-dough recipes.  These are all NON-COOK recipes which are much faster and easier to make then the traditional home-made play-dough. Most ingredients you should have lying around your house, which makes these activities very cost efficient. I had such a fun time trying out two of the dough recipes with my children.  The kids loved it so I thought I should share our crafts with all of you…



1 part flour
2 parts oatmeal
1 part water

Mix ingredients together and form into shapes.
After a few hours the dough will dry up. You can then paint your dough if desired.


*Peanut Butter Play Dough (EDIBLE)*

All I have to say is yum yum yum. I snuck a taste of the dough while my kids were playing with it. It is so good.  I recommend watching your kids while they play with this one.  The kids ate a little bit of their creations. If I left my two alone they probably would have eaten the entire thing, which would be a little two much sugar for them 🙂


* 1/2 cup peanut butter
* 1/4 cup honey
* 1 cups powdered sugar

Mix all ingredients in a bowl, using your hands. Roll the dough into balls and it will become less sticky. Form shapes and be creative!

Storage: Put in the fridge in an sealed container.
