Homemade Play Dough

>>  Saturday, October 09, 2010

Cog decided she wanted to do play dough.  It must be 5 years since the play dough box saw the light of day but it had been packed away clean and tidy and was there ready.

I have always made my own play dough, mainly because Cog used to eat everything when she was small and I was happier knowing what she was eating!  But also because making it filled up more playing time and it is good lesson in weighing, measuring and good prep for school.
So if you still buy playdough...stop!!!!

You only need:

1 cup plain flour (100grams)
1/2 cup salt        (150 grams)
1 tablespoon cream of tartar (cooking aisle near bicarb!)
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1 cup hot water (200 ml) from kettle with a splash of food colouring

Just put them into a bowl in that order and mix well, when it comes together just kneed it a bit and you have play dough as good as the bought stuff.  It will keep a week or 2 in a zip lock bag or Tupperware in the fridge.

I know my kitchen looks like a bombs hit it, that's because I decided to play whilst I had the opportunity instead of clean.  My play days are now very few and far between!!
