Tips on Making Your Very Own Sprinkle Play Dough
Is Sprinkle Play Dough Edible?
Technically, yes, this recipe for Sprinkle Play Dough is edible. However, it won’t taste the greatest since it’s mainly made up of flour and salt.
If ingested, it wouldn’t be harmful. I tend to tell my kiddos to NOT eat it, just so that they get in the habit of not putting any sort of play dough in their mouths (whether homemade or store-bought).
Can I Use Any Kinds Of Sprinkles?
How Do I Prevent My Sprinkle Play Dough From Drying Out?
When you’re not playing with your sprinkle play dough, be sure to store it in a sealed freezer bag or airtight container. If it gets a little tough, just add some water to it (one teaspoon at a time) and knead it to get it back into its normal texture.
Refrigerating it is not necessary – it’s just important to keep it in something that’s airtight to keep it from drying out!
DIY Sprinkle Play Dough
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/4 cup salt
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup sprinkles
- Mix the ingredients until play dough forms. If the dough is still too dry, add a little bit of water, one teaspoon at a time.
- Once the dough forms, fold in the sprinkles. Be sure the sprinkles are fully incorporated into the dough before playing or else you will get a huge sprinkle mess!
