Fun for the Kids

This is a great play dough recipe that I thought I would share. Enough said!

Holiday Fun Dough


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


In a 4-cup microwavable measuring cup, stir Bisquick mix, salt, and cream of tartar until mixed. In liquid measuring cup, mix water and food color.

Stir in a small amount of colored water at a time into dry mixture until all water is added. Microwave covered on high for 1 minute. Scrape mixture from side of cup and stir. Microwave uncovered 2 to 3 minutes longer, stirring every minute, until mixture forms a ball. Let dough stand uncovered about 3 minutes.

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 mix.) Cool about 15 minutes.

Use dough to make fun shapes. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator up to 30 days. Dough is not edible.

Notes: This stuff is an awesome texture and consistency. It is so easy to make, and my kids love playing with it. I like to heat it up for about 15 seconds in the microwave (after it has been refrigerated) each time my boys play with it...otherwise, it is kind of cold to handle until it warms up to room temperature.

  1. Fun! But why would it not be edible. I mean, I can see that you wouldn't plan to eat it, but there's no glue or anything that would made little toddlers sick.
