Recipe for playdough

Today we decided to make playdough together for the first time. Playdough is fun, easy and excellent for creativity. It can also be very cost effective if you make your own. All you need is a few simple ingredients.

Basic playdough recipe

1 cup salt
2 cups plain flour
2 tablespoons oil
3 teaspoons cream of tartar (secret to longer lasting playdough)
2 cups of boiling water
food colouring as required (I used wiltons icing colour)

Mix ingredients together and enjoy!

Why not try adding something extra to make it a different experience for your little one. I added some edible glitter for some extra sparkle, but you could try some macaroni or rice to make it bumpy, even vanilla or peppermint essence to make it smell yummy.

Do you have any ideas of different things you could add to playdough? We would love for you to share them with us.
