Recipe for Playdough

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.
