How to make Homemade Playdough?

Playdough is a versatile thing that you can make using the ingredients from your pantry. They pave the way for more imagination and every kid would love to squish them. Nathan loves playdough from a very young age and loves to play with them. The store-bought one has loaded with chemicals and costs a bomb. This recipe is versatile and pocket friendly. I stopped getting playdough from the store and just stored them properly and reused them for weeks together.

Homemade Playdough:

  • If you find the dough bit dry, add some water and knead and if the dough is sticky, dust some flour onto them.
  • You can store them in the Ziploc or in an airtight container. If the dough sweats the next day, dust it with some flour. Good to play once again.
  • You can add cookie cutters, rolling pins, a cutting boards, knife and watch them recreate magical things.
