No Cook PlayDough

My kids love  playdough. I love making my own because it is a lot better than store bought (my opinion) and it lasts a lot longer if you keep it stored correctly. I’ve always used an old cook top playdough recipe from my former preschool teacher Mom to make my own it it’s not hard but now I have found an even easier recipe that requires no cooking! All you have boil some water. Check out this easy no cook playdough recipe!


Last weekend we woke up to a very rainy and cold morning. All my kids wanted to do was watch tv or play on the Ipad. That’s fine for a little bit but not all day. I decided to try out this recipe I heard of for no cook playdough. It literally took 5 minutes (or as long as it takes for 2 cups of water to boil). That’s it. Do you have time to boil water? If so then you have time to make no cook playdough!


No Cook PlayDough


  • 2 cups of boiling water
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of salt
  • 2 tbsp of oil
  • 3 tbsp of cream of tartar
  • food coloring


  1. Boil 2 cups of water
  2. Combine the above ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Start kneading and folding (it will be hot!).
  4. I usually have to add more cream of tartar so it won't be sticky.
  5. I like to dump out my dough and knead and fold on wax paper.
  6. Once it's all mixed together, add in some cookie cutters and other fun playdough toys and that's it!
