Slow Cooker Play Dough

  • Cooking Time:

    30 minutes to 2 hours

The kid­dos are going to love it when you make them PLAY DOUGH in the slow cook­er! Make this any­time — its easy and most of the time you like­ly have these ingre­di­ents on hand. Enjoy!

  1. Com­bine and stir the dry ingre­di­ents togeth­er and place in the slow cook­er.
  2. Pour in water and oil and mix well.
  3. Cov­er. Cook on LOW for 30 min­utes and stir, until it forms a ball.(Cooking time will vary, as every slow cook­er heats a lit­tle dif­fer­ent­ly.  You will want to watch this close­ly to make sure it does not dry out.)
  4. Trans­fer dough from the slow cook­er to a clean, dry sur­face.
  5. Let cool for a few min­utes as it will be too hot to han­dle, then knead the dough.  (Divide if you would like to make a few dif­fer­ent col­ors.)  FUN!
  6. Drop food col­or­ing of your choice on top of the knead­ed dough.
  7. Cov­er hands with plas­tic gloves to keep the col­or­ing off your hands, and knead until the dough is thor­ough­ly mixed with the food col­or­ing.
  8. Place in air-tight con­tain­ers for stor­age.

NOTE: If sticky, add a lit­tle corn­starch, and if dry add a lit­tle water.

Option­al: Divide the dough to make dif­fer­ent col­ors if you would like!

Anoth­er idea, in place of the food col­or­ing: use a pack­et of kool-aid! The col­ors are more vibrant & it smells good too!


Are you going to do a home­page fea­ture on your best autumn recipes again, like you did last year? 🙂
