Kids love playdough. They can entertain themselves for hours rolling and molding the substance. But as much fun as it is for them, it can be a nightmare for parents, who worry about whether or not they will actually try to take a bite out of their "hamburger" or "pizza" creations. If you're looking to make a worry-free playdough for your kids, then you should keep a few safe playdough recipes for kids on hand.
According to Very Well, most commercial brands of play dough are nontoxic, but that doesn't mean you can totally let your guard down. You should always check the packaging for ingredients and warnings. That being said, if you don't trust labels, and what to know exactly what's in your kids' dough, you can easily make it yourself using ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen. And as a bonus, letting your kids help out can be a fun way to teach them about measuring ingredients and reading recipes.
All of the recipes in this list are considered totally safe for kids, but you should be sure to check the ingredients for things your kids may be allergic to before allowing them to play. Once you've confirmed everything is safe, you can relax and let your kids have fun. And all you'll have to stress out about is cleaning up afterwards.
