Homemade Easter Playdough

Homemade playdough is a very popular activity in our house.

The girls love pretending and I often see them making pretend playdough cookies.

I saw some cute Easter cookie cutters at the dollar store and thought it would be fun to make a batch of homemade playdough just in time for Easter.

The girls love playdough and I have made a few different kinds over the years.

Heat the ingredients in a pot over medium heat, being sure to stir often. Be patient, it takes a while to start sticking.

Once it starts sticking together, remove from pan on a floured surface and knead.

If you find that you want a more tough dough, change the salt measurement to 3/4 cup.

Keep an airtight bag or container.

Playdough is a great option for filling Easter baskets or for Easter egg hunts.

If you are not interested in making your own playdough you can always pick it up for a decent price at your local dollar store.

You can also pick up cookie cutters, fun plastic eggs, placemats for playing on and so much more!


I hope you all have an enjoyable Easter.

This is very cool, making things is way better than buying I think and kids always have way more fun. Great post!

This looks like so much fun! Can you believe that I haven't tried homemade playdough yet? It's on my list of things to try with my little guy.

This is great! I love to make stuff for my kids to play with (usually I do it as an activity with them). I love the candy-free idea. Thank you! Great pictures btw.
