Gluten Free Playdough Time & A Winner!!

Mr. P is almost 18 months old! He is now into playing more specific things now, even if only for a few minutes. Happy Hubby is not so into play dough, so we have never really had it around for the girls, plus store bought playdoh is not gluten free!

I searched over the internet to find a recipe for Gluten Free homemade play dough and found a recipe here at the Parents magazine website!

Cut and Paste from here...

  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 cup water 1 teaspoon cooking oil
  • Food coloring, if desired
Mix ingredients. Cook and stir on low heat for 3 minutes or until it forms a ball. Cool completely before storing in a sealable plastic bag.

Just a warning, it does not take long for the dough to get thick!! It gets very hard to stir, my arm was getting tired and Happy Hubby had to hop into the kitchen to help out! lol

Busy hands squeezing play dough!

Now that is one satisfied, sensory stimulated *almost* 18 month old!

Any other homemade gluten free goops or other sensory stimulating items I should make for Mr. P to play with?
