Edible playdough recipe

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have a good edible playdough recipe. All the ones I find have peanut butter, milk, and/or honey in it. DD is 10 months so all big no-nos.

i can't seem to find it right now but i got it from martha stewart - well,not her personally but i'm sure it's on her website.and i'm pretty sure it's just flour water cream of tartar and salt.not sure but worth a look.

When mine were this age we did playdough type play with rather pastey oatmeal. It was ok if it was eaten, however there was always a bath needed after such an event!

What about a simple bread dough of flour, water and a little salt?

i found a recipe on betty crocker dot com. im not sure it really edible but i think it is. its called:

Bug Fun Dough
Make this easy and colorful dough for hours of playtime fun. Kids love it!

1 1/4 cups Original Bisquick® mix
1/4 cup salt
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 cup water
1 teaspoon food color


1. Stir Bisquick, salt and cream of tartar in 4-cup microwavable measuring cup until mixed; set aside. Mix water and food color in liquid measuring cup.
2. Stir a small amount of colored water at a time into dry mixture until all water is added. Microwave uncovered on High 1 minute. Scrape mixture from side of cup and stir.
3. Microwave uncovered 2 to 3 minutes longer, stirring every minute, until mixture almost forms a ball. Let dough stand uncovered about 3 minutes.
4. Remove dough from measuring cup, using spoon. Knead dough in your hands or on the counter about 1 minute or until smooth. (If dough is sticky, add 1 to 2 tablespoons Bisquick.) Cool about 15 minutes. Use dough to make shapes and designs. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.


i hope that this will work for anyone who was looking for one that didnt have peanut butter or honey in it. i can wait to try it out.

I was thinking about making homemade playdough for my daughter's birthday party for the children to take home with them. I was just wondering if food coloring is considered toxic at all?

Thanks!

There's a thread in the toddler forum about this right now! (I'd link if I knew how....) I posted a recipe there that is just flour, salt, oil, and water. Completely edible if your child should choose to partake as mine does!
