Play Dough Made with Honey

As a child there was one item you could always count on for hours of entertainment: play dough – it allowed the mind to be creative and the imagination run wild. With a little bit of honey, flour and a few other simple ingredients, you can make your own play dough. It is soft, smells good and is long-lasting.


Here is what you will need:

  • 2 tbs Sue Bee® Honey
  • 2 cups flour (plus 1/4 cup to use later)
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 tbs cream of tartar
  • 1 1/2 cups of boiling water
  • 1 tbs vegetable oil

Start off by mixing the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl mix together the wet ingredients, then slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry while stirring. If the mixture looks too moist, add the extra flour as needed. Begin kneading the dough on a cutting board or hard surface that has been dusted with flour. Continue kneading until it is soft and easy to mold. If it seems too dry, add a teaspoon of oil and knead it in until the desired consistency. When the kids are finished playing with the homemade play dough, store it in an air-tight container so you can use it for a few months!
