Homemade Cinnamon Play Dough Recipe

This is the BEST homemade play dough for your toddlers!


Homemade play dough is my new favorite thing!! I recently made it for the first time with my boys and it was so EASY and FUN! I will forever more be making our own homemade play dough instead of buying it at the store!


So why make your own play dough you might be thinking!? Since we made it, we know exactly what's in it! I love that this recipe is safe and okay for my little ones to *accidentally* taste and play with. You probably already have all the ingredients in your kitchen.

Read on for the recipe we used!


Play Dough Recipe


2 cups all purpose flour

3/4 cup salt

4 teaspoons cream of tartar

2 cups lukewarm water

3 tablespoons coconut oil

essential oils/ food coloring (optional)


  1. Add flour, salt and cream of tartar to a pot. Next, add lukewarm water.

  2. Add coconut oil and turn heat to medium.

  3. Stir over medium heat constantly until the dough has thickened. It will start to form into a ball.

  4. Remove from heat and let cool on wax paper.

  5. Once cooled, add your essential oils if using and knead the dough until nice and smooth.

  6. Store in air tight containers such as a mason jar or Tupperware.
