Homemade playdough for my toddler

Toddlers especially enjoy playing with playdough and since it is not convenient to always buy new playdough when you need it (and u usually need it more than twice a day, after that all colors are mixed up and you end up throwing it away)  and also because of the toxicity and mess (the one I tried stained everything it touched), I usually make my own playdough at home. It’s really easy.

Here is the recipe I use for each color:

1 and a half cup flour

third cup water (add more if needed)

1 Tablespoon oil

1 teaspoon salt

1 Tablespoon corn flour (optional)

food color


I usually wrap them in a sealed plastic bag in the refrigerator and when Hussein wants to play with them, i get him a small portion from every color.  I am not worried even if he tries to taste it and it doesn’t stain his clothes or the carpets.
