We rolled them into balls (great for fine motor skills), pushed them into some oats and baked them for about 10 minutes at 180 degrees Celcius on an oven tray. They were delicious with a glass of milk, though only one or two at a time as they were fairly salty!
This play dough is, essentially, just normal cooking dough, but still lots of fun. I probably wouldn’t put it in our favourites list but I’m glad we tried it as we had it bookmarked as a must-try for a long time!
A few of our favourite play dough recipes:
Best Ever 4 Minute Play Dough Recipe
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Play Dough
Willy Wonka Play Dough
Chocolate Play Dough
Lavender Play Dough
What they are learning as they play:
- Sensory: exploring textures using fingers and scents using nose. Describe sticky/ dry/ liquid/ solid
- Motor skills: develop fine motor skills by pinching, squeezing, rolling, squashing, flattening
- Creativity: pretend and role play scenarios eg bakery, sweet shop, pizzas, pancakes. Using one tool to represent another in imaginary play.
- Knowledge & Understanding (Science): Mixing ingredients together, observing change of state of materials, predicting outcomes, experimenting outcomes of adding more flour/water, talking about real cooking ingredients and tools, baking and experimenting with recipes and outcomes
- Maths: counting out cup fulls, measuring and quantities, capacity- full, empty and half full
This is awesome thank you! My daughter loves playdoh but I usually end up tidying it away early because she eats a lot of it. This is perfect! X
Great idea, will give this a go.

My daughter and I are huge fans of your play dough recipes and have accumulated an assortment of yummy scented, colored doughs since I discovered your blog. Some of them are ready to be retired and I was curious if you have any other ideas to use for old play dough before throwing it out?
