Homemade Play Dough

easy play dough recipe


There are so many different recipes for edible play dough out there. I made one a  recipe  a few months ago out of flour and oats. She cared more about eating it then playing with it, so I decided to hold off for a few months before trying another recipe. She still has a tendency to put things in her mouth but not quite as much as before. The idea for this is that it is edible but won’t taste good.


So here it goes!



The Imagination Tree has a wonderful post about the benefits of play dough, check that out here.

I am happy to say she did not try putting it in her mouth at all!
She started out poking it.
 Then she realized you can pick it up and manipulate it with your hands.
She then decided to use the cookie cutters to stack on top of it.
 We then got out some pipe cleaner and she started sticking away.
 I really loved the consistency of this dough. This could be stored in a zip lock bag or a plastic container (I used Tupperware).
