Gluten Free Allergy Friendly Playdough

Gluten Free Allergy Friendly Playdough – Yippy!

My kids adore Playdough. They will play with it all day, every day. As homeschoolers there are also lots of fun activities we can do to integrate it into our learning and school days.

Allergy Friendly Gluten Free Vegan Nut Free Playdough

I have a few recipes that contain wheat, but wanted to try one gluten-free since my husband is gluten-free.

This Playdough is vegan, gluten-free and top 8 free. It only has 4 ingredients including water and food coloring. The other two are baking soda and cornstarch.

I have to say this is one of the softest playdough recipes we have ever made and my kids loved the feel of it! Heck, I love the feel of it!

A note about the food coloring, I just used the recommended amount that came on the box and the associated colors I went with: orange, green and purple. You can play around and create whatever fun colors you come up with! We chose these three colors because hello it’s Halloween season… boo!
