Recipe: Matcha-dyed Green Playdough

I've combined my favorite homemade play dough recipe with an easy, natural way to dye it green. It's just in time for St. Patrick's Day!
Here's what you need:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour*
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 tablespoon matcha powder**
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil or avocado oil
  • Optional: Essential oil (we used sweet orange)
1. Stir together flour, salt, cream of tartar, and matcha powder in a pot.
2. Add water and oil and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it forms a ball and is no longer sticking to the sides of the pot, about 3-5 minutes. 
3. Remove from heat and let the dough cool until cool enough to handle. Optional: Add a few drops of essential oil and knead it in.
*I used all-purpose flour for this, but I've also used King Arthur Gluten Free All-Purpose Flour with some success. Gluten-free flours tend to really soak up liquids, so I recommend using a scant cup of flour for this recipe.
**You could also try a little less spirulina powder (a little goes a long way!) or greens powder.
You can store this play dough in an airtight container for a few weeks or even months. Enjoy!
