Sensory Sunday: Cooked Play Dough

Sensory Play, recipe, Preschool, ECE

Cooked play dough comes out a bit softer than uncooked play dough.  You may want to pick up a cheap thrift store pan for cooking your play dough so you don’t ruin a kitchen pan.

Cooked Play Dough

3 cups flour 1 cup salt 6 teaspoons cream of tartar 3 cups water 3 tablespoons vegetable oil Food coloring

Mix flour, salt, and cream of tartar in a large saucepan. Blend water and oil together in a bowl. Add to the saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until it thickens. Add several drops of food coloring or liquid watercolors until you get the right color. Cook for about five minutes. Take the play dough out of the saucepan and put it on a cutting board or counter and knead for a few minutes. Add flour if it’s too sticky.  Be very careful when kneading as it will be very hot!
