Hey folks! aren’t you tired of eating the same old dishes and then cleaning up the same old mess? How about trying something new, simple, and well something that would lay off the load of the cleaning routine a little bit? Well, we have the perfect no-cook play dough recipe for you. Playdough is like a boon for toddler learning- the smell is so refreshing, the texture is so squishy and it’s the perfect item to mould and sculpt to fume up your child’s creativity and imagination. Let’s dive into an activity with no cooking but lots of fun!

Best Recipe for No-Cook Play Dough


What you need:

  • 2 cups plain flour (all-purpose)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil  (baby oil and coconut oil work too)
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1 to 1.5 cups boiling water (add until it feels just right)
  • gel food colouring (optional)
  • few drops of glycerine (optional)  (secret ingredient for stretch and shine!)

Best Recipe for No-Cook Play Dough

*Invite your little one and start mixing plain flour and water in a bowl. 

*Let your little one measure. Initially, it could be a little messy as they would not know how much amount of flour and water is to be used, but keep trying and guiding till you get there. 

*Now add a little food colour, oil, salt, and mix, fold, and rock forward and backwards to knead the dough. This is an amazing practice to get your little one’s wrist and finger muscles moving so keep doing it till you get tired. 

*Add the glycerine (optional)

Tada! You’ve got a non-messy clay-ish thing to play with. Feel free to use flowers, leaves, etc. to make your own unique dish!

Hope you loved the recipe. Now, let your pumpkin make shapes after shapes, play after play with the No-Cook play Dough.
