All-Natural Homemade Play Dough Recipe

You can make (together with your kids!) a natural homemade play dough!

my kids get to use their hands to be creative in their play, and I always consider that a good thing.

There’s a problem with Play Doh though, and that problem is that it never lasts long at our house. The bright pink mixes with the soft yellow and the blue and orange mesh into a mess, and before I’ve even realized what’s happening, we are stuck with seven cans of murky brown Play Doh.

And as well,my kids have a tendency to drop significant percentages of it on the floor. By the time they’re finished playing and ready to put their Play Doh away, half of it is dried out and has to be swept up.

There are several recipes for homemade playdough. Many of them contain ingredients that I don’t typically have on hand, so I opt for the simplest possible recipe. What I use could probably even be considered a salt dough recipe, but with a little extra flour it becomes soft enough to play with for hours.

Is your child suffering from dry, itchy skin? Pure has the natural & safe cream for you!


  • 1 cup of flour (whatever kind you have on hand)
  • ¼ cup of salt
  • ½ cup of water
  • 3 to 5 drops of natural food coloring


  1. Mix together the flour and the salt.
  2. Mix together ½ cup of warm water with a few drops of food coloring.
  3. Slowly pour the water into the flour mixture, stirring as you pour. Stir until combined, then knead with your hands until the flour is completely absorbed. If the dough is too sticky, add more flour until it doesn’t stick at all.

The next time you’re stuck inside for a rainy day, get your children to help you make some homemade playdough! They’ll enjoy making it, but not as much as they’ll enjoy playing with it.

About the Author:

Pure natural cosmetics is not just a name, for me and many others it became a way of life! All my life I had an affinity to healthy life style. As a dancer and a trainer, i was always looking for the good combination of healthy food and healthy movement. In time I learned that its not only what you eat that matters. Also what you use as cosmetics or medical products is important. The skin is the biggest organ in our body. About 60% of what we put on our skin gets into the blood system and with that to the inner organs. I invest my heart and soul into “Pure natural cosmetics” and the best part is to hear the amazing comments from my client.
