Homemade Playdough

With this winter storm I can only imagine the number of times “homemade playdough” or some variation has been googled in the past few days. There are lots of recipes out there, and this is the first one we’ve tried, but it was a winner for us. I just left it white this time, but I read a tip that if you’re going to add food coloring, add it to the water before you mix it in with the dry ingredients.


  • 2 cups baking soda
  • 1 cup corn starch
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • food coloring


Mix all ingredients with a fork until smooth. Boil until thick (about 4 minutes). Let cool.
