DIY Edible Homemade Play Dough Recipe


  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 Tbsp. Canola oil
  • 1/8 cup Salt
  • 1/4 cup boiling water  **Adults only**
  • 1 pack Kool-Aid (or a few drops of food colouring)

Mix all ingredients together well. Add flour if sticky. Make sure it is COOLED off completely before handing it to the child!

Add a few rolls of your play dough into a container with some plastic animals, dinosaurs, trucks, or other items to encourage more fun!

Store in the fridge in an air-tight container or zip lock bag and it will last a few days.


  • The last two and a half years have been wonderful for Asharib. I still remember the 1st day when I dropped him at daycare and how scared we both were. But he had learned so much in the past 2 years & I am glad that I decided to send him to Lori Gardens. Special thanks to all of Asharib’s teachers for taking such good care of him teaching him manners and always trying to make his day fun & exciting. Thank you so much for everything!

  • 45 years of excellence is a great achievement. Congratulations! We will continue to support your growth. Together stronger!
