Here’s a great playdough recipe I’ve been meaning to share:
- 3 cups flour
- 1.5 cups salt
- 1 tbs cream of tartar
- 3 tbs oil
- 3 cups boiling water
Combine dry ingredients. Add water, oil and food colouring. Knead. Add more water if the mixture is too dry.
A cool sensory addition is essence to match the colour. For green playdough, add peppermint essence; yellow – squeeze a couple of lemons into it; brown – add some cocoa; red – raspberry or strawberry essence; black – liquorice tea.
