Here’s a handy and simple recipe for home made Play Dough.
- 1/2 cup salt
- 1 cup plain flour
- 2 tbs cream of tartar
- 1 cup water
- 1 tbs oil
- 3 drops liquid food colouring
- Mix all ingredients together in a medium-sized saucepan.
- Stir over heat until dough is pliable.
- Allow to cool, and store in a well-sealed plastic bag or container.
3 drops of colouring is an estimate – adjust to your liking.
This makes enough for 2-4 children to have a good-sized lump to play with.
The dough will last for 6 months or more if you keep it in the fridge.
