Betsy’s No-Cook Playdough Recipe

Let them in on the baking fun with this super easy play dough recipe from our very own Betsy B.

If you show your child this recipe and point to it as you're working, you'll be showing them that print has meaning.

When you're finished, break out the cookie cutters and rolling pins and let them make their own "cookies."

Betsy's No-Cook Play Dough Recipe:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Optional: Scents (peppermint, lemon extract, cinnamon, or other scents), food coloring

Betsy's Note: This concoction is edible, though it doesn't taste very good.
