Play Dough

We were stuck inside due to rain a lot late last week, so one of the evenings I decided to make some play dough for Judah... it wasn't quite as marvelous an experience as I'd hoped!

I'm not sure if it was the play dough recipe or what, but it was a bit crumbly. And while Judah enjoyed himself, it really wasn't a true play dough experience!

Have you made play dough? Do you have a tried and true recipe for it? I'd love to have one and maybe try making it again.

This is one that we made at Kindy all the time, lasted the whole week when sealed in a container. Can last longer if wrapped in cling wrap and put in the fridge.

2 cups plain flour
4 tablespoons 'cream of tartar"
2 tablespoons cooking oil (I usually use veg oil)
1 cup salt
2 cups boiling water
food colouring

Sift the flour, cream of tartar and salt into a bowl, add the oil and water and food colouring and mix! Then put onto bench and knead. Sometimes we used to add things like glitter too.

Mine is similar to that, but it does need to be cooked. My friend uses this recipe and it makes awesome play doh.

1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup of water
food coloring

Combine salt, flour, and cream of tartar. Stir in oil. Slowly add the
water. Add a few drops of food coloring. Place the mixture in a
pan. Cook and stir the mixture over medium heat. The mixture will
eventually turn into a ball in the mixing bowl. When it has reached a
pliable stage, place it in the refrigerator to cool. There are no
preservatives in this play dough recipe. Store the play dough in an
airtight container in the refrigerator.
