Easy Playdough Recipe


As I look out my window, it’s a rainy, freezing, stay curled up in side kind of day, and if the national forecast is correct, many of you are stuck inside with snow.

Have you heard the kids mention they are bored? Our kids should never be bored if they dig into their imagination, so let’s create another easy boredom buster solution.

Why not turn off the TV, gather the kids and have a blast making one of our most favorite past times. For years, we loved making Homemade Play Dough. In fact, even though our youngest is nine years old, she still has a huge supply of Play Dough in our craft closest and once a month grabs it out and begins creating something fun.

It’s so critical to continue having our kids use their imagination in their play and this is a perfect way to do it.

Do you have a favorite Boredom Buster for your kids? It doesn’t have to be just crafts. I’d love to share it here on the blog, and welcome your photos and ideas.



  1. I just made this yesterday! I was so excited. Gave it to my 15 month old. . . and she wasn’t interested at all. I thought she would love to squish it, but she just walked away. Oh well. I will keep trying. She will probably end up putting most of it in her mouth. :)


  2. Fun stuff! I remember loving play dough when I was a kid too :)


  3. love this …I need to try it with my little one…looking for ideas to keep her occupied. :)
