Homemade Play Clay

with 4 comments



I was going to try  recipe for Clay using Glue, but instead I made one for the kids :)

Tomorrow I'll be making the one with Glue, that way they already have some to play with.

Right here at Disney Family Fun you can get the recipe.

I made one thing different, instead of using cream of tartar I used lemon juice (same amount).

So again you can go to the website and get the Recipe, but I will tell you the ingredients...

1 cup flour

1 cup water

1/2 cup salt

1 tsp. vegetable oil

1/2 tsp. lemon juice

Food Coloring




You know what? Now that I am writing this I kind think I used one tablespoon of oil and not teaspoon

 LOL.... Ups! Too much oil... Oh well, I will try to add some more flour tomorrow.

As you will find out after going to the site you cook the dough, but not for long, it cooks really fast.



Not long after that and you'll have this...


Now you can  knead it.



And you will have this beautiful smooth dough....


You can divide the dough into pieces if you want to use the food coloring to make colorful Play Clay.


Is this beautiful or what?????

I just Love homemade anything :) !!!!!!!!!


You can store the dough in a container, I like to put each color in a bag and inside a container

like this...



That's it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very easy!

Now the mess.......... not fun ;)


Have Fun making Your Play Clay :)

Thanks for coming.
