Gluten Free Play Dough Recipe (don’t eat)

0708151709As a stay at home Mom I find it hard to come up with crafting ideas. So, I decided to head to the internet for some Play Dough recipes. As you know, or maybe don’t know, most store-bought play  dough is made with Wheat Flour. Well, for me even playing with it will cause a terrible reaction. So, after some research online I decided to give this recipe a try!It was super easy and very quick to make. The website and recipe can be found over at it is titled “Easiest Gluten – Free Play Dough Recipe”

Here it is!


1 Cup White Rice Flour

1/2 Cup Cornstarch

1/2 Cup Salt

1TBS Cream of Tartar

1-1/2 TSP Vegetable Oil

1 Cup Water (hot but not boiling)

Food coloring if youd like


Mix all dry ingredients together in a medium size pot

Add vegetable oil, then the water and continue to mix until combined

Heat Pot on stove over low heat for about 3 minutes stirring continually with a silicone spatula

When dough starts to pull away from the sides easily transfer dough to parchment paper, let cool before you work with it

Kneed in food coloring into dough until you get the color you desire

To store:

I wrapped each ball with plastic wrap and put into a ziplock container so they don’t dry out! You can also keep them in an air tight container 🙂

Have fun!
