GF Play Dough


Regular play dough is gluten-full and a BIG "NO-NO" on a GFCF diet. You can use CRAYOLA MODEL MAGIC or create your own.

Here is a recipe:

  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 cup corn starch
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp. cooking oil
  • Colorings can be added

Cook and stir on low heat for 3 minutes or until it forms a ball.

Taken from "Gluten Free News" Spring 1996 issue.

In rereading my notes I see that the recipe I used was the same, except it called for corn flour rather than corn starch. I stirred it over low heat until it couldn't be stirred any longer, then kneaded in more white rice flour by hand. It was still sticky so I sat it in a ziploc freezer bag for 2 days at room temperature and then it seemed to be OK. Mine lasted 5 years, kept in a freezer ziploc bag in the frig when not in use.
