So my sister and I made some play dough from scratch for my nephew to play with.
Making your own play dough means that all the ingredients are “natural” and you know exactly what ingredients are in it. This is important as kids love to put things in their mouth!!! My sister got the recipe from Playgroup WA. It was very easy to make and I would highly recommend:
- 1 cup salt
- 2 cups of plain flour
- 2 tablespoons of oil
- 3 teaspoons of cream of tartar
- 2 cups of boiling water
- Food colouring
Mix all the ingredients except for the water together in a bowl. Pour the hot water over the mixture and stir. Be mindful that you may require more/less water depending on the flour you use. Knead lightly on the table and the texture will eventually become “dough-like”. Store in an airtight container in the fridge and the play dough should last months! Simple!
Until next time,
