Playdough Tutorial Of Sorts

It was rainy here in Cleveland so I decided to get my craft on with my kids.

We recently purchased a Vitamix and I am so in love. Well I decided that I would let the kids whip something up so we used the following recipe.

Pour in vitamix in order listed:

  • Two cups water
  • Two tbsp vegetable oil
  • Two cups white flour (I used wheat and it did not turn out at all)
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • Natural food coloring
Place all of the ingredients in your vitamix machine and blend for five minutes. The friction from the fabulous vitamix will basically cook the playdough.

Once done you need to quickly divide it into four bowls. I used about twenty drops of food coloring for each one cup portion of the playdough. The easiest way to mush it is with a fork. The food coloring will dye to your skin if you try to knead it with your hands.

You will want to let the playdough set up for about fifteen minutes before playing with it. When it is set up get ready for some crazy messy fun, C1 and C2 definitely had a good time. Don't be suprised if you need to give the kidlets a bath afterwords.
