Recipe: Playdough

- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup salt
- 2 tbsp cream of tartar
- 2 cups boiling water
- 2 tbsp oil
- a few drops of food colouring

- In a large bowl, mix together the flour, salt and cream of tartar.
- Add the boiling water, oil and food colouring. Mix quickly and then knead on a floured board until firm, not sticky (you may need to add extra flour).
- Store in an airtight container.

I love making playdough for Riley. It is so easy and feels so much nicer than shop bought plus he loves it. I usually halve this recipe but it depends how many kids you are making it for as this recipe makes quite a bit. You can also separate it out and add a different colour to each portion.

I love this recipe, too...I originally tried one where you "cooked" the dough, but find just adding the boiling water works much better!
