Frozen Playdough Recipe
This recipe uses our favorite, classic playdough recipe. It’s the softest playdough we have ever made and lasts for months! And it’s not messy to make when you add the food coloring to the water.
For the white playdough – it’s even less messy since you don’t need any food coloring at all! And if you’d like, you can skip the glitter.
To make fun snowflake imprints in your Frozen playdough – we used these snowflake stampers. You can also use snowflake cookier cutters.
How to Make Frozen Playdough
This method for making the playdough uses the stove-top to cook the playdough. You can also substitute with boiling water and mix in a bowl. However, we find it’s much easier to mix the ingredients in a pot.
Here are the ingredients you’ll need: Flour, Cream of Tartar, Water, Food Coloring, Salt. Skip down to the recipe card below to see the full recipe instructions and video.
Do you need cream of tartar? Yes, if you want a soft playdough and want it to last longer, you need to add a little bit of cream of tartar.
What snowflake stamps did you use? We used this set of snowflake stamps. You can also use regular snowflake cookie cutters too.
If you would prefer to use a biodegradable glitter here are a few options:
We made two different colors of playdough. One blue playdough with blue food coloring and one plain (no food coloring),
Here is the blue playdough with a little bit of fine blue glitter added to it:
Here is the white playdough (no food coloring added) with some iridescent glitter added to it:
How Should I Store Playdough?
Store the finished playdough in an air-tight container. It will help to also wrap it in some saran wrap to keep the air from touching the playdough which can make it go hard.
How Long Will The Playdough Last?
It should last at least one month if stored properly. The less air that can get to the playdough when storing, the longer it will last! We like to wrap in saran wrap and then place in a container.
