Homemade Sand Playdough Recipe
Keyword: sand playdough

Ingredients

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup play sand

Instructions

  • Mix the flour, salt and cream of tartar and whisk well. 
  • In a pan or pot, add the water, oil and mix.
    Add Water and Oil to Pot
  • Slowly add in the dry ingredients (flour, salt, cream of tartar) to the pot and mix well. Cook on low to medium heat.
  • Keep mixing well and spread out in the pan if possible so that the salt mixes well with the water to dissolve. 
  • Do not continuously stir while cooking. Let it sit for a few seconds before mixing and flipping the dough in the pot. The dough is done when it starts to form a ball and looks fully cooked. 
  • Take off the heat and let cool. 
  • Knead for 10 minutes to make the dough smooth.
  • Once your dough is cool and kneaded, knead in 1/2 cup of play sand. It does take some time to fully knead in all of the sand. Keep kneading and it will continue to mix in. Note: If you want it to have more of a sandy texture, slowly knead in more sand, 1 tablespoon at a time.

Notes
