Making Playdough

Playing with playdough is a fun way to enhance your child's creative side. Let their imaginations run wild while they create a world of animals, cooking or simply just banging it on the table.
We use playdough a lot in our home and we make it all ourselves. Some playdoughs that you but can be quite toxic, you should be mindful of this when purchasing. But when it is as easy to make as this, why would you buy it?

So, to make your own playdough, follow these simple instructions and you're on your way!

What you'll need ...

2 Cups  Flour
1 Cup   Salt
2 Cups  Water
4 Tbs    Cream of Tartar
2 Tbs    Cooking Oil
Food colouring

What to do ...

* Add all the ingredients to a medium size saucepan and place over a medium heat.
* Stir continuously until the dough comes away from the side of the pan.
* Add colouring.
* Remove from pot and knead colouring in (Be careful it will be hot!!)
* Store in an air tight container or sealable bag.
Ideas on taking playdough further is extremely exciting for me. We mix and add colours as well as scents and glitter to make play time more fun!
