Play Dough Recipe

Half a cup of salt
One cup of flour
Two teaspoons of cream of tartar
One tablespoon of oil
One cup of water
Food colouring

Mix the ingredients in a saucepan over a low heat and stir until a solid ball is formed. The texture should be such that when you roll a small piece between your fingers (be careful, as it is HOT!) it should be able to form a ball. If it sticks to your fingers, stir for a little longer.

I have tried many recipes, but this one really is fabulous and if you store it in an airtight container or a plastic bag. (Ziploc bags work really well) It lasts a long time too.


*NEW* No Cook Play Dough Recipe

A friend shared this wonderful recipe which is quick and easy too!

Mix together:

2 cups plain flour
1 cup salt
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
2 tablespoons oil

Add 2 cups of boiling water and food colouring and mix. Once combined knead until a smooth ball.

*You may want to wear rubber gloves as it is a little warm to start.

Keep stored in airtight container.

Cornflour Finger Paint Recipe

2 tablespoons of cornflour
1 cup of cold water

Mix enough water wtih the 2 tablespoons of cornflour till it forms a paste with a thickish custard consistency.

Ass one cup of water to the saucepan and cook it on the stove, stirring consistently until it reaches a thickish consistency.

Divide it up into a few little plastic containers and add food colouring, or paint of your choice to each.

TIP: Add a little dish washing liquid to each container too- it seems to keep the colours from staining little or not so little fingers!
