It Can Be A Fun Indoor Day with Playdough!

Play Dough Recipe

Click photo and print off. Personal use only please. Thank you!
Hello....... snow, snow, snow........ what can I say. I won't repeat it. Here is our family play dough recipe that we have used forever. We love it. This artwork was from when Tressa and I did the Grandma's House Book years ago. I so wish I had it to sell. It is out of print and would love to someday be taken up by someone to do another book. Tressa was about 9 or 10 when we did this. I was licensed with a company that did books and I showed them Tressa's artwork that she did as she sat next to me when I had art to do for licensing companies. The company accepted her and we had a lot of fun. The idea here of putting the play dough in layers in a wide mouth jar is really a sweet gift to give maybe to your kids or grandkids for Valentine's Day. Hope you enjoy it.

Okay ladies. I just tried to make the click on the picture. Oh...... my...... it is to big. My techy girls are not here to help me. They will be back tomorrow, so I will see if they can help me then. I don't know what to do. I am just the mom and can't be computer geek too. I have to much in my head already. It has to stop somewhere. Right? Sorry!! Maybe drag it off to the desktop and then copy it off. Hahaha and I think I know what I am talking about?

Leave me a comment........ I loveeeeee comments. They make me feel like I have a family out there!!! Smile.


  1. YAY! Homemade play dough! thanks for sharing.

  2. I love this idea. We've given homemade play dough as a gift before, but the jar makes such a cute presentation. I am definitely going to do this! Thanks for the great idea. Feel free to send some of your snow down to Arkansas :)

  3. Hi Linda!
    I have grandbabies that just love playdough. I have a recipe somewhere but don't want to take the time to dig it out and this seems just like it. Thank You! I think they will love it for Valentines Day.

  4. I never thought of the jar idea. Thanks! We have just cut it in big hearts and given it away in baggies, but the jar idea is great!

    I feel like part of your family, so thanks for that. It gets lonely out here.

  5. You are so welcome Joann. This is the best play dough recipe!!!! If you keep in a ziplock bag, it stays good for a long time!

    Mom of 3, I would share some snow with you. Guess what, more snow tomorrow. Maybe up to 8 inches! I am not going to complain, I am going to be happy. Smile....

    Lady Farmer, Your grandbabies will like it. It comes out so soft and nice. You are more then welcome. Thank you for coming by and leaving me a comment. Hugs

    Christ, I love the idea of the big heart idea. Cute, cute!
    You are part of my family!!! I am sorry that you get lonely. You email me any time. I love mail and it would be wonderful to hear from you.
    I read your last post. Scary huh? Oh, how I just want Jesus to come and get us all, right now! I will wait, His time is better then mine. smile...

    Hugs to all of you and thank you for commenting. Have a wonderful day in the Lord tomorrow!!!!
    Blessings, Linda

  6. I am completely with you on the computer techy stuff. When I have problems I call on Hubby or my wonderful son-in-law. I couldn't to any of this without their help. Thanks for the recipe. It sounds like fun to make. Our snow has stopped for now. We have about 20-22 inches on the ground. Probably 12-l4 of that is new snow, the rest is from last weekend. It certainly makes everything beautiful. God Bless.

  7. My sister used to make play dough. Used to eat it too. (so salty!)

  8. I clicked on the photo and then on Print Preview. I then reduced it to 40% and it printed out great. Thanks for the recipe. I used to make this for my older kids when they were little, but somewhere along the line I've lost the recipe. I'm sure my twins would love to play with some of this.

  9. Linda,
    Thanks for the snow! We have about 4 inches on the ground girls are loving it! It ws an unexpected surprise to wake up to - a gift from the Creator. I'm making your play dough today for a friend's 5th grateful for the idea since I can't get out to the store :).

  10. Thanks for sharing this :) I've made homemade playdough before, but it wasn't this recipe. I need to try this one :)


Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment. It is so appreciated and it makes me feel like I am making a new friend.

God Bless your day!
