    How do I make Glue Dough for Craft Projects?

    Mix, mold and bake glue dough that your kids will love to play with and top off with a colorful coat of paint.
    • Moderate

    Supplies Needed

    • Elmer's Glue-All 1/4 cup
    • White flour 1/4 cup
    • Corn Starch 1/4 cup
    • Food coloring (optional)
    • Cookie cutters
    • Bowls
    • Rolling pin


    You can mold and shape dough into figures or roll flat on a floured surface and use cookie cutters to cut desired shapes. To get colored dough, add a little food coloring or acrylic paint to the glue before mixing it in with the dry ingredients. You can also paint your dough creations with Glue Paint!


    1. Measure equal parts of each and combine in a big bowl. For best results use level measurements.
    2. Mix and knead untill well blended. If too dry, add drop or two of glue; if too moist, sprinkle with flour and cornstarch, a little at a time.
    3. Modeled items may be baked in low oven (200°F or so) to speed drying.

    Glue Dough will keep for weeks in a tightly closed plastic bag.

    NOTE: ¼ cup glue, ¼ cup flour, ¼ cup cornstarch will create a tennis ball-sized yield
