Pirate Inspired Play Dough

It is "Talk Like a Pirate Day" so we made some pirate inspired play dough.  Scented with rum extract!


  • plain white flour – 1 cup
  • salt – 1/2 cup
  • cream of tartar – 2 tsp (you can substitute 2 tbsp of baking soda)
  • water – 1 cup
  • cooking oil – 1 tsp (if you use baking soda, add 1 tbsp of oil instead of 1 tsp)
  • food coloring
  • glitter (optional)
  • rum extract (optional)


*Mix until smooth
*I added red and blue food coloring.  I knew I couldn't make black.  
When I think of pirates, 
I also think of water and treasure!

 We used gold, silver, red and gold glitter to represent the "booty". 

*Stir until smooth and then until play dough bunches up to form a ball
*Take it out of the pan and allow the play dough to cool
 *Knead and store in air tight container
