Sugar Cookie Playdough

  • Author: Happily the Hicks


It only takes 7 ingredients and 5 minutes to make some homemade sugar cookie playdough. Perfect for little ones, and it’s great for easy toxin free fun!


Units Scale

1 cup flour

1/2 cup salt

2 Tbsp cream of tartar

1 tsp vanilla (I used Mexican vanilla)

1 Tbsp oil

1 cup water

Essential Oil (optional, but makes it smell nice! I added 3 drops of a Christmas blend I got from Plant Therapy)

1/2 cup sprinkles


In a saucepan, mix together all the ingredients over medium/low heat. Add HALF of the sprinkles as the playdough begins to solidify and come together.

Keep mixing until the mixture forms a ball and comes away clean from the sides of the pan.

Remove from the pan and place it on some parchment paper. Knead for a minute or so as you slowly add the rest of the sprinkles to the dough.

Let it cool, then have fun playing!

Store in an airtight container (I use a ziploc baggie).
