Kosher For Passover homemade playdough

7 Mar


Playdough without flourPlaydough is usually made out of flour, which obviously is not ok for use on Passover. I have seen alternative gluten free recipes with rice flour or corn flour. What I hadn’t seen was potato flour, a main staple on Passover (especially if you are of Ashkenazi decent.)

We had  reason to make some homemade playdough so this is what we came up with:

100 grams baking soda

130 grams water

200 grams potato starch

Mix together and cook over a low flame until the consistency is playdough-ish. Add color, as desired. If its too sticky, add more potato starch. It has a different consistency from regular playdough, but it is quite nifty to play with and potato starch also feels different from flour so its quite a tactile experience for small fry. A good activity on Passover, or to use up potato starch afterwards. Oh, and don’t leave the bag of potato starch within reach of a two year old.

    Can you tell me how much you made with one recipe? I am going to make it for Pesach goodie bags going to the kids who attend our synagogue’s programs. I need to figure out how much potato starch I need.

    I’m sorry I don’t remember how much I made. I think we made at least three balls (as in the picture) plus a bit more.
