Easy Play Dough

29 October 2014 - 03:18 PM

Hi, I just finished experimenting and have a recipe for easy gluten free play dough that isn't too sticky or crumbly. I thought I would share it here. It is an adaptation of a recipe I found here a couple of years ago when my daughter was first diagnosed.


This is a simplified version. 

Hope it helps!


Gluten free play dough



In a large mixing bowl place:


½ cup gluten free cornflour (corn starch)

½ cup rice flour

½ cup salt

2 teaspoons cream of tartar (gluten-free)

1 teaspoon of oil


Add food colouring to 1 cup of boiling water then add water to bowl and mix until it makes a smooth paste.


Leave until mix cools to room temperature or just above. (20-30 mins)



½ cup rice flour

½ cup gluten free corn flour and mix/knead until combined.


At this stage the dough is usually still a little sticky so add a little more cornflour as needed.


Voila! Beautiful gluten free play dough.


I find that using fine salt gives the nicest texture.


This play dough tends to get stickier over time rather than dry out, so sometimes I add a little bit of cornflour at the beginning of a play dough session if needed.
