DIY play dough

DIY play dough

Play dough is an absolute consumable for us. It either dries up or just disappears (I don't even understand). Since I found this practical recipe, we have been making it together in the color chosen by the children. It can also be perfectly combined with essential oils.


  • 1 mug of flour
  • 1 mug of water
  • 1/3 cup salt
  • 1 bag of baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon of oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of citric acid
  • food coloring
  • essential oil (optional)


Apart from the food coloring and the essential oil, put the ingredients in a pot and start heating them on a medium heat, stirring constantly. It will thicken after a while.

Then take it off the heat and color or scent the plasticine to your liking.

Store in the refrigerator, in a box, or in a well-sealed bag!
