How to make no-cook playdoh


Use this quick and easy no-cook playdoh recipe to make soft, taste-safe playdoh at home or for use in education settings. Keep it in a snap-lock bag or air tight container and it will last for 6 months. When we make it, we always do a double batch (I have 2 kids). If it dries out, I dip it in a bowl of water for a second and then mix thouroughly until consistant and soft again.


Don't forget to grab the "Forces playdoh activity mat" and the "6 x Playdoh activity mats" to make the most of your playdoh -these A3 printable templates (not included, downloaded seperately) encourage children to refine fine and gross motor skills; strengthen hand, arm and shoulder muscles; coordinate symmetric and asymmetric use of their hands; manipulate the amount of pressure they use and engage their proprioceptive sense (awareness of body position).... and do a bit of science at the same time!
