Muddly Puddly Laboratory

Just add water to create your own all-natural playdough, made with real mud!

Made with our homegrown, signature mud from Muddly Puddly Laboratory, this MakeMUD Playdough Powder contains a rich soil/sand, high in organic content, and gently filtered away from the worms and other creatures that live deep in our garden.

Like all of their  MakeMUD products, the natural soil component has been safely sterilized to eliminate all live matter, then mixed with food-grade ingredients.

  • Requires 50-80 mL of hot water, directions on pouch
  • After making, playdough lasts for 6 months in airtight container
  • Contains 200g of dry playdough mix
  • Packaged in a compostable pouch
  • No added colours or fragrance
  • Developed and handmade in Melbourne, Australia by Muddly Puddly Laboratory (a mum and her kids)


Recommended for ages 3+ years, adult supervision required. Like all playdough, this is a toy and is not suitable for consumption.



For MakeMUD playdough, empty all the powder into a small bowl. Add 3 tablespoons (60 mL) of freshly boiled water. You may be tempted to add more, but don't just yet. Mix all the water through the powder first, and when cool enough, knead into a crumbly dough. Now add more hot water, just a few drops at a time, kneading constantly to create a playdough with your desired consistency. Knead playdough till cool and no longer sticky.

Little hands may like to help with kneading the dough when the hot water is thoroughly mixed through, and it is warm but safe to touch (adult to check first). It is a sensory delight to help make muddy and warm playdough!



MakeMUD Playdough Powder contains:

Sterilized soil or sand, certified organic wheat flour, salt, cream of tartar, vegetable oil (sunflower/canola), pure vegetable glycerine (palm oil free, non GMO, soy/rapeseed derived)


MakeMUD does not contain nuts, dairy, eggs or corn, but is handmade in a facility that contains those items. Even though the utmost care is taken to produce our products in a clean environment, cross contamination could occur.

If you have any specific health concerns, please consult your child's doctor before using the products. 

MakeMUD is a toy and not suitable for consumption. Even though the soil/sand component is thoroughly sterilized before being mixed with food-grade ingredients, we advise direct adult supervision at all times, just as when young children play in the garden or sandpit.
