No Cook Peppermint Play Dough
In the past I’ve shared a play dough recipe that I also love, but it required cooking over the stove and I found that Ariana couldn’t really engage in the process as much. This time, we modified a “no cook” recipe and we were able to work together more. We counted and measured out the ingredients, she mixed, and even when I mixed in the boiling water, she could sit next to me and watch. For that reason, I slightly prefer this “no cook” recipe.
Give it a try and let me know what you think! 🙂
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 cup salt
3 cups of cream of tartar
2 tbsp of veg oil
1.5 – 2 cups of boiling water
*optional peppermint oil
*if you prefer pumpkin spice, add pumpkin spice
*optional food coloring
Mix all dry ingredients. Add veg oil. Add boiling water. Mix with a large spoon. Let it sit for a few minutes. When sufficiently cool, start kneading. Enjoy the process. It is therapeutic.
You can add food coloring before or after kneading the dough.
