These dough's and other recipes are from
And some from a few of my books. Hope this list isn't too long. Just save
it until one of those days you need it. Some good stuff in here.
1. Bread Dough Recipe
This recipe is trickyjust when it seems like it is not going to work;
all of a sudden you have the most wonderful dough. It is 8 Slices of
bread and 1/2 to 1 cup white glue. You can
remove the crust if you want more "pure" white dough or you can leave it
on and it will have a "wheat" color to it. Start with 1/2 cup glue and
more as needed.
2. Cloud Dough
Food coloring; 1 Cup Water; 1 1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil; 6 Cups Flour
Add a few drops of food coloring to water. Combine water, oil, & flour in
large bowl. Knead well. If necessary, add more water in small amounts
until the dough is soft and
elastic. To store the dough, refrigerate it in an airtight container.
Cloud dough is somewhat greasy. Make sure children play on a washable
3. Coffee Dough
4 Cups Unsifted All-purpose Flour; 1 Cup Salt; 1/2 Cup Instant coffee; 1
Cup Warm water
Dissolve the coffee in the warm water. In another bowl, mix the flour and
the salt. Make a well and add 1 cup of the coffee water into it. Mix with
a fork or hands until smooth.
Add more coffee water if needed. Dough should be smooth and satiny, not
sticky or crumbly. Store in a plastic bag to prevent drying. Bake
finished designs in a 300-degree oven
for 1 hour (until hard). Add 2 coats of shellac to preserve.
4. Cornmeal Playdough
2 Cups Cornmeal; 2 Cups Flour; 1/2 Cup Oil
Mix all ingredients, adding water to reach the desired consistency.
5. Frosting Dough
1 Can Frosting Mix; 1 1/2 Cups Powdered sugar; 1 Cup Peanut Butter; Spoon
Mix all ingredients in bowl with spoon. Knead into workable dough. Model
as with any dough.
6. Gingerbread Playdough
1 Cup Flour; 1/2 Cup Salt; 2 tsp. Cream of tartar; 1 tsp. Vegetable oil;
Cup Water; Food coloring (equal parts of red & green make brown);
Mix the dry ingredients. Add allspice and cinnamon (lots) for a wonderful
scent. In another bowl, add food coloring to water (the color blends
better this way.) Add colored water
and oil to dry ingredients and stir. In a pot, cook the mixture for two
to three minutes, stirring frequently. Knead the dough until it becomes
soft and smooth. Allow cooling. Store
in an airtight container. It has a much nicer consistency and doesn't dry
out like commercial play dough.
Try different colors and scent combinations. Unsweetened Kool-Aid can be
used in place of allspice and cinnamon.
7. Oatmeal Dough I
1 C Flour; 2 Cups Oatmeal; 1 Cup Water
Gradually add water to flour and oatmeal in bowl. Knead until mixed. This
dough is sticky, but unique in texture. Model as with clay.
Variations: Add cornmeal or coffee grounds in small amounts, for texture.
8. Oatmeal Dough II
1 Cup Oatmeal; 2 Cups Flour; 1/2 Cup Salt; 1 1/2 Cups Water; 1/2 Cup Oil
Mix all ingredients until the desired consistency, add more water or
flour as needed.
9. Peanut Butter Playdough I
5 Cups Powdered sugar; 3/4 Cup Peanut butter (creamy style); 2/3 Cup
Light Karo Syrup; 1/3 Cup Soft margarine (Country Crock works best); 1
tsp. Vanilla; 1 tsp. Salt
Wash hands well. Depending on the climate you may need to increase or
decrease the Karo syrup. It is best to add it 1/3 cup at a time. In a
large/jumbo zip lock baggie add all
ingredients. Add the Karo last since you may or may not have to adjust.
Close zip lock and knead until pliable consistency, then let kids go for
Refrigerate after play if there is any left. After the initial use the
peanut oil will separate so always re-knead before play. Also the peanut
oil will be released some during play so
make sure it is on a washable surface and kids are not clothed in
10. Peanut Butter Playdough II (Edible)
18 oz. Peanut butter; 6 Tbsp. Honey; Non-fat dry milk or milk plus flour
to the right consistency; Cocoa or carob for chocolate flavor (optional)
Wash hands well. Shape. Decorate with raisins, sprinkles, etc. then EAT!
11. Puff Dough
1 Cup Flour; 1 Cup Water; 1 Bag Cotton balls
Mix flour & water together to make a paste. Roll cotton balls in paste &
carefully lift out, allowing excess to drop off. Form into desired shapes
on a baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour
at 325 degrees. Can be painted when cool.
12. Scented Playdough (Vibrant color, fruity scent)
1 Cup All-purpose flour; 1/2 Cup Salt; 1 Package unsweetened drink mix
1 Tbsp. Vegetable oil; 1 Cup Boiling water
Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in oil and water. Stir over
medium heat until mixture forms a ball. Dump on wax paper. Allow mixture
to cool slightly, then knead
until desired consistency. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight
container. Cut the fruit picture from the box and glue it to the lid you
use to store it in.
Hint: Let the children play with the Playdough when it is still warm (not
hot!) - calming!
13. Shampoo Dough
3/4 Cup Flour; 1/4 Cup White glue; 1/4 Cup Thick shampoo
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Knead dough. Add more flour as needed.
14. Ultimate Playdough I
2 Cups Flour; 1 Cup Salt; 1 tsp. Cream of tartar; 2 Tbsp. Oil; 1 tsp.
Food coloring; 2 Cups Water
Mix all in saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until dough
leaves sides of pan. Remove from pan, and when cool to the touch, knead
for a few minutes.
15. Ultimate Playdough II
2 1/2 - 3 Cups Flour; 1/2 Cup Salt; 1 Tbsp. Powered alum or 1 tsp.
granulated alum (found in spice section); 2 Cups Water; 3 Tbsp. Oil;
Wilton's paste food coloring (using a
third or half a jar, makes the brightest Playdough you've ever seen)
Mix together dry ingredients. Have kids measure 2 cups of water and 3 T
oil and the food coloring into a pot. Put the pot on the stove to boil.
The children measure 3 flour, salt
and alum into a bowl (if you use granulated alum, put this in the water
instead so it can dissolve). The kids take turns stirring the dry
ingredients. After the water boils, have the
children stand back, pour the boiling mixture into the dry mixture and
stir quickly. Roll a small handful of HOT Playdough between your palms
until just barely cool enough to
touch (still pretty hot) the give to a child. Children LOVE to feel the
warmth and it's not hot enough to burn them.
Other options: add glitter (for fun sparkle) or unsweetened Kool-Aid
powder (for scented rich color). Let the kid's just play with it one day;
add cookie cutters on another day.
Try garlic press, plastic knives and forks. Add a few trays to display
their baked goodies. Bring out the candy molds and muffin trays on yet
another day to extend the play!
Storage: Store in a jar with a tight lid. Dough will keep several months
16. Ultimate Playdough III
2 Cups white liquid glue; 2 1/2 Cups Water
1 Tbsp. Borax powder in 1/3 C Water and add to the above. Blend together
with your hands (messy but fun). Dissolve another Tbsp. Borax in 1/3 C
Water and add again. Blend
together with hands. You can probably vary the consistency of dough by
using more or less Borax.
Making this is a lot of fun as the consistency of the Playdough is kind
of like oozy-slime. It's not suitable for rolling and cutting. Nor is it
edible. Store in an airtight container. It
doesn't have to be refrigerated. It bubbles a lot like fermenting yeast
which also "adds" to the experience.
It wiped up easily from the carpet and since everything's water-soluble
should probably wash off the clothes as well.
Clay, Goo & other Compounds
1. Chocolate Clay
10 oz. dark, milk or white chocolate confectionery coating (1-3/4 cup
semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips may be substituted (chopped and
melted)); 1/3 Cup light corn syrup

medium heat until mixture forms a ball. Dump on wax paper. Cut the fruit
picture from the box & glue
it to the lid you use to store it in.
9. GAK--some people call it GLARCH (This resembles Nickelodeon "GAK")
You can make it white and the kids can color it with markers. It's a
surefire rainy-day hit! You can also color it with food coloring and cut
it with scissors, etc. When colored with markers, it quickly turns
slate-gray/brown, but it's cheap and easy to make another batch.
2 Cups White glue; 1 1/2 Cups Water at room temperature; 1 Cup Hot water;
2 1/2 Tbsp. Borax
Thoroughly blend glue and room temperature water. In larger bowl, combine
hot water and Borax, stirring until Borax is dissolved. Slowly pour glue

10. Glue Goo
2 Cups White glue; 1 3/4 Cups Water
1 tsp. Borax in 1/2 Cup Warm water.

1 Box (16 oz.) Cornstarch; 1 Cup Water; Food coloring (optional)
Let children add water to the cornstarch in small additions, and mix the
ingredients by hands. Add a few drops of food coloring into the mixture,
Hint: Cookie trays/broiler pans that have ridged edges are a great play
surface for goop and clays.
12. Kool-Aid Clay
3/4 Cup Salt; 2 Cups boiling Water; 1 or 2 pkgs. Kool-Aid; 3 Tbsp. Oil; 4
Mix first 4 ingredients. Add flour. If dough is too sticky, add more

16. Sawdust Modeling Compound I
1 Cup Fine Sawdust; Food coloring; Old newspaper; Shellac or Varnish; 1
Cup Thin Paste or Paper Paste
If desired, dye sawdust with food coloring. Drain and spread on newspaper
to dry before using. Mix sawdust and paste to a thick dough-like
consistency. Knead until thoroughly
mixed. The amounts of paste may vary according to the kind of sawdust
used. If the sawdust is coarse, more paste may be needed to obtain the
Uses: Model as with clay. Articles molded with this compound have a
lovely woodgrain appearance.
TO USE: Pieces of dough may be added to the basic piece by moistening and
sticking them down. Within two to three days, the finished article will
harden. To speed up drying
bake in a 200-degree oven for 1 to 2 hours, depending on the size of the
article. To give the article a permanent finish, spray with shellac or
varnish. They can also be sanded to
give a smoother finish.

Art, Activities, Gifts
Paraffin; Old crayons; Cold water; Hot water
This one needs some supervision, but it's awfully fun.
Take paraffin and melt it (boil some water in a big pot and put the
paraffin in an old coffee can inside the pot of water). Fill some small
little water balloons with water. Take old
crayons and melt them into the paraffin to add color. Dip the water
balloon (holding the tied end) into the melted paraffin. Keep the
paraffin about 1/2-inch from the top of the
balloon. It works great if you dip in hot water then dip in the bucket of
cold water to cool it. Just keep dipping until there is a thick layer of
paraffin around the balloon. Let it
dry overnight and harden. Then pop the balloon, and fill the shell with
more melted paraffin and a wick. The candles turn out really cool shapes.
You could try dipping hands in
the mixture and make candle hands
2. Cinnamon Ornaments
1 large bottle ground cinnamon (about 1 cup); 3/4 Cup applesauce
Combine cinnamon with applesauce to form stiff dough (adding additional
applesauce if necessary). Roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with

Use, as you would glitter.
4. Flower Preservative I
1 pt Powdered Borax; 2 pt Cornmeal; Covered cardboard box; Fresh flowers
Thoroughly mix borax and cornmeal. Cover the bottom of the box with 3/4
of an inch of this mixture. Cut flower stems about 1 inch long. Lay the
flowers face down in this
mixture. Spread the petals and leaves so that they lie as flat as
possible. Do not place flowers too close together. Cover the flowers with
3/4 of an inch of the mixture. Place the lid on the box and keep at room
temperature for 3 to 4 weeks. This is an excellent way to preserve
corsages or flowers from someone special. Try daisies, pansies, apple
asters, violets, and other flowers with this method. They will stay
summer fresh indefinitely.
5. Flower Preservative II
Fresh Flowers (roses, pansies, violets, sweet peas, chrysanthemums,
zinnias, marigolds, daisies); Florist's wire; Airtight container such as
-a coffee can; Plastic bag; Borax; Wire
or string; Soft brush
Pick flowers at the peak of their bloom. Remove the stems. Make new stems
with florist's wire. Run wire through the base of the flower and twist
the two ends together. Line the
coffee can with the plastic bag. Pour enough borax into the plastic bag
to cover the bottom to a depth of 1 inch. Place flower face down in the
borax. Pour about 1 inch of borax
over the top of the flower. Add more flowers and borax until the
container is full. Gather the top of the bag, squeezing out all the air
inside it. Fasten shut with wire or string.
Place lid on can and set aside in a dry place for at least 4 weeks.
Remove flowers from borax and carefully brush away all borax with a soft
USES: Flowers preserved in this way make colorful "permanent" floral
arrangements. Flowers picked at the peak of their bloom remain fresh
TO USE: Using the wire stems, makes an attractive flower arrangement as
you would a fresh-flower bouquet.
6. Fragrant Soap Balls
Have children make homemade soap balls to give as a holiday gift or just
as a middle of the year surprise to someone special in their lives.
Water; Ivory Soapflakes
Use water to moisten Ivory snowflakes to the consistency of very stiff
dough. Divide the dough into several bowls. Add a different perfume and
food coloring to each bowl for
Have children shape large spoonfuls of the soap into balls. Have them
make about three balls each. Place the balls on trays (labeled with their
modeler's name) to harden for
Have children wrap their three soap balls in colored cellophane paper and
tie the package with a pretty ribbon.
7. Homemade Bath Salts
2 1/2 lb. Epsom Salts; Food Coloring; Perfume
Combine Epsom salts with food coloring and perfume in a large bowl. Mix
well so color is even. Put into smaller jars and let stand 4-6 weeks
before using. This causes the odor to
blend with the salts.
This bath salt is very soothing and makes for a very relaxed bath.
8. Spicy Applesauce Ornaments I
3/4 Cup Ground cinnamon; 1 Cup Applesauce; 1 Tbsp. Ground nutmeg; 1 Tbsp.
Ground allspice; 1 Tbsp. Ground cloves
Mix together above ingredients. Roll out the dough to a 1/4-inch
thickness (dust the tabletop and rolling pin with cinnamon to prevent
sticking). Let the children use cookie
cutters to cut shapes out of the dough. Place the shapes on waxed paper.
If you plan to hang, poke a hole in the top of each shape. Allow the
shapes to air-dry for several days (or
bake them on a cookie sheet for several hours at 250 degrees). Turn the
shapes often to prevent curling. To complete the spicy ornaments, tie on
loops of ribbon or yarn for
9. Spicy Applesauce Ornaments II (Cinnamon Applesauce Hearts)
1 lb. jar sweetened applesauce; 8 oz. Cinnamon
Drain jar of applesauce overnight (you will be amazed at how much water
seeps out!!). Add cinnamon and mix together well. Pat into a ball, press
hard to solidify and mix. Then
pat out in 1-cup units onto wax paper, push to 1/4" thickness and cut
with cookie cutters. Dry on wax paper. Oh - poke a hole in the top with
toothpick (I used a chopstick!). Turn
over and dry in a warm place for several days. Then hang a ribbon through
the hole, use as a decoration or a kind of sachet. They are definitely
10. Rainbow Stew I
1 Cup Cornstarch; 4 Cups Water; 1/3 Cup Sugar; Food coloring; Large
ziploc bags; Duct tape
Mix above ingredients together into a large fry pan. Cook until
thickened. Remove and stir until cool and add coloring. Make three or
four different colors of rainbow stew. Put
two different colors into a large ziploc bag. Push the air out of the
bags, seal and duct tape to top of ziploc bag.
Let the children squeeze the bag and see what happens. This will keep for
about 2 weeks. This is a wonderful lesson on primary color mixing.
11. Rainbow Stew II
1/3 Cup Sugar; 1 Cup Cornstarch; 4 Cups Cold water
Cook until thick. Put in bowls and add food coloring. Put in ziplock
baggies. Let the kids play with it while it is in the bags for a neat
