One Minute Playdough 

As the name goes this no cook recipe takes just a minute to make soft, stretchy playdough. The only con is, its not edible. So if your LO is still in the stage where everything goes in the mouth you may want to try our simple Homemade Playdough Recipe.

What you need

  • All purpose flour
  • Dishwashing Liquid
  • Food color (optional)

How to

  • Mix 1 cup of all purpose flour and 1/2 cup of dishwashing liquid and food color in a bowl.
  • Knead well. 

Your soft, stretchy playdough is ready. If its too hard add more dishwashing liquid or of its too sticky add more all purpose flour. There’s no fail here. The measurements mentioned worked fine for me.

I did not use food color for this recipe – liked the way it turned out. Depending on the dishwashing liquid you use, your dough might color differently. It smells great too(because of the dishwashing liquid) and easy to wash off hands. Unlike the regular playdough it does not stick on to your rugs, carpet, floor or clothes, leaving traces that you played with the playdough 😀

Hence, I've started to explore & create activities to keep them occupied - fun & some learning.. This blog is my maiden attempt where you can find simple crafts and learning activities for kids.
