Good Grief, More Play Dough!

Okay, after this I promise to stop sharing playdough recipes for a while!  :)  I just had to make a note to try these recipes and I thought I might as well do it here in case anybody else liked the sounds of them too……..


Oatmeal Play Dough

2 cups smooth peanut butter
2 cups rolled oats
2 cups powdered milk
2/3 cups honey
Optional -Rice Krispes, Coconut Sprinkles, chocolate chips, Red Hots, etc.

Mix ingredients until combined.
Wash hands.
Lay down wax paper.
Store in air-tight container.

Cloud Play Dough

1 cup water,
1 1/2 cup vegetable oil,
6 cup flour

Add a few drops of food coloring to water.
Combine water, oil and flour in a large bowl. Knead well.
Add more water if necessary in small amounts until the dough is soft and stretchy.
Cloud playdough should be used on a washable surface as it is very greasy.

Coffee Playdough

4 cups unsifted all purpose flour
1 cup salt
1/4 cup instant coffee
1 1/2 c 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 with your hands until smoother.
Add more coffee water as needed: dough should be smooth not sticky or crumbling.
Store in air tight container.

When you’re done making figures, bake in oven for 1 hour at 300 degrees or until hard.
A coat or 2 of shellac keeps it well preserved for longer lasting gifts.

    different java dough
    just wanted to let you know that while i haven’t tried the coffee dough you posted yet (i have the same recipe), i have tried another one that i think seemed easier. you can find it on my website here: http://fresnofamily.com/activities/doughs.htm
    i’ve not tried all the doughs there yet, but that one, called java dough I, i have, and it was way easy, and what a great way to recycle used coffee grounds!🙂
    just thought you’d like to know.🙂

      Thanks Tina! I’ve been to your site before and I love your collection of playdough recipes. 🙂
      I’ve seen the used coffee ground recipe and mean to try that one too. I don’t make coffee very often so I generally forget when I have the grounds. The one with instant coffee was new to me so I wanted to make a note for myself. The oatmeal one seemed way healthier than most of the edible ones so I thought I’d try that one with sunbutter (we have a peanut allergic child). And the cloud one was new to me too, but I see you already have that one too!
      Thanks for the heads up on the coffee ground version! I’ll try harder to make some coffee and try it out. 🙂
