Easy Homemade Flesh-Colored Play Dough

Thank you for sharing!

I totally needed this recipe for flesh-colored play dough. Useful for like everything.

First, let me apologize. I know this play dough is not the color of every persons’ flesh. And I know that it would be super-rude of me to indicate that it is. But I really just can’t think of a better way to title this–should I have said “very pale caucasian people-like flesh tone play dough”? No, that’s just not reasonable. “Easy Homemade Flesh-Colored Play Dough” is pretty much the best I can come up with. I’m super-sorry if I’ve somehow offended you or anyone else. I don’t mean to. I’m just not very creative with titles today.

There’s just never enough things to make stuff out of. Wait–what did I just say. Lemme rephrase. I think I’m maybe always coming up with new ideas that force me to come up with other stuff because what you can buy on the shelf is not exactly what I wanted anyway. Plus, I want it now, so waiting until I can get to the store is just not happening. There. That’s what I really meant. For example, I wanted a fleshy-colored play dough to have in my Build-Your-Own-Turkey Invitation to Play. You know, so that the turkey could be all fleshy, and then you add feathers…made sense at the time. Anyway, I desperately (DESPERATELY) needed this play dough. And there wasn’t any in the house, so I’d obviously have to make it. Five minutes later, I had a big batch of Easy Homemade Flesh-Colored Play Dough. It’s taste-safe and kind of yummy smelling (a little like Tang), but the most important part: Its very fleshy-colored. Heh.

How to Make Flesh-Colored Play Dough

  1. Mix dry ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl.
  2. Mix wet ingredients together in a small mixing bowl.
  3. Add wet ingredients into dry in 1/3 increments.
  4. Mix everything together using your hands.

I’m totally thinking I could do a great Build Your Own Pilgrim with this play dough, or even a nekkid chicken (not sure, but that might be fun). But some other random ideas I’ve had for using this dough while writing this:

  • Apple Slices
  • Noodles
  • Noses

The ideas are endless. And kind of ridiculous. Which is totally awesome.

So, be sure to pin this Flesh Colored play dough recipe to your favorite crafts board, so you can get back to it in the snap of your fingers. You know you’ll have to make more!
