Favourite play dough

March 6, 2017

I have tried various play dough recipes and always come back to this one-

2 cups of plain flour

2 cups of warm water

1 cup of salt 

2 Tbsp of vegetable oil 

1 Tbsp of cream of tartar

Put all the ingredients in a saucepan and cook on a slight heat whilst stirring until all the mixture comes together to form a play dough consistency and  scrape excess mixture from around the pan into the mixture. Pop in any added extra colouring /scents into the mixture and then empty dough out on to a board and knead for a few mins until smooth. 

Optional to add -glycerin (a few drops for sheen), food colouring 🎨 (cocoa powder=brown), essential oils or herbs 🌿 

This recipe does contain salt so please monitor little ones to make sure none is consumed, and wash their hands after use. It’s really not tasty so mine have never been interested in eating the dough!
