Play Dough Recipe


  • 1 cup of flour

  • 1/4 cup of salt

  • 3/4 cup of water

  • 3 tablespoons of lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil

  • Food coloring

  • Any seasonings or scents you would like


  1. Add the water, oil and lemon juice to a medium non-stick pot and heat on medium heat on the stove (maybe even slightly lower heat depending on your stove).

  2. Add food coloring, liquid scents or Kool-Aid to the water mixture.

  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt and any dry seasonings you are using.

  4. After the water is hot, but not boiling, slowly add the dry ingredients to the pot and while mixing to combine. I use a wooden or plastic cooking spoon.

  5. Continuously stir until the ingredients combine, dry out and begin to form a ball. If there are parts that seem a bit sticky still, just flatten the dough out and put the sticky side down on the bottom of the pot very briefly. Flip back and forth frequently until it doesn’t seem sticky anymore. However, don’t cook it too long. It is better to be a bit undercooked as it will firm up as it cools down.

  6. Place on a sheet of wax paper until it cools down a bit. Then knead the dough for a minute or two to bring it all together.
