This playdough is great! My 3 year old and my 12 year old both love it. We used Kool-Aid to color and scent some of the dough and food coloring in some. The batch makes a good size lump of dough, easily equal to 4 cans of Play-doh brand. Great fun for the whole family!!

Would have been good to have a temperature for this - mine got quite dry as I think I had the heat up too high! Found it easier to mix the colouring in with the water at the beginning.

Not the best playdough recipe I've used, but alright. It turned out gritty and dry - not sure why? But good enough to play with!

I made a half batch, but I mixed it all together at once, and cooked it a little longer so it wouldn't be sticky. This is the same consistency as the stuff they sell at the store! I definitely won't be buying anymore.

This turned out great! I have made this recipe several times and I usually mix all ingredients and cook it until it forms a ball and is no longer sticky. It makes the process much faster and your hands don't get all oily. I also add glitter and lemon, vanilla or mint extract for extra appeal. Its even great for babies as it is non-toxic, and they love to poke and squish it! So EASY to make!!!

Made this today for a playgroup meeting at my house tomorrow. I goofed a little as I forgot to stir it continuously but it still came together really well. I used about 5 drops of food colouring but the colour I got was not nearly as nice as the picture so will add more colour next time.

Great recipe! Saved me when I didn't have enough playdoh to go around. Came together very quickly. I used Koolaid to color it, but was not happy with the result. I will definitely get food coloring for next time! Thanks!

I have no idea what went wrong but this seemed to make a sticky dough for me. I cooked it until it was paste then mixed in the oil and some food paste. It never seemed to get less sticky even when I left it out overnight after I tried working some more flour into it. I really wish I came out with something like in the photo for recipe!
