Allergy Safe Play Dough Recipe

Your average play dough is not allergy friendly, especially for the littles that like to put it in their mouth while they play. We created a play dough recipe that is allergy friendly, so everyone can be included! We know food allergies don’t have to limit you, especially creatively!  

Prep Time: 60 minutes (50 minutes cooling time, inactive)
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
Yield: 1 1/2 cups


1 cup Hungry Harry’s All-Purpose Flour Blend

1 cup of water

2 teaspoons cream of tartar

⅓ cup salt

1 tablespoon oil of choice

Allergy-friendly food coloring


How To

Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Place the saucepan on the stove and cook on low to medium heat - while stirring constantly. Once the mixture begins to thicken, add allergy-friendly food coloring!

Continue to stir until the mixture is no longer wet, thick, or sticking to the edges of the spoon. Remove the play dough mixture and allow it to cool on a plate or a covered wax-paper surface.

Once the dough is cool, knead the dough for a few moments until the texture is consistent. Time to play!
