This is my Play dough recipe.
As I have used this recipe for over 30 years, I don’t remember the source but I noted that there was one very similar on the back of a packet of Cream of Tartar. This recipe makes a very malleable play dough that doesn’t stain and is easy to clean up afterwards.
- 1/2 cup salt
- 1 cup plain flour
- 2 tablespoons Cream of Tartar
- 1 cup water
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil ( Canola, Sunflower)
- 1 teaspoon food colouring
Put all the ingredients into a medium sized saucepan, place over a gentle heat, and cook for about three minutes, stirring all the time to blend well. Remove from the heat, and tip onto a bread board to cool. When it is cool to touch, knead it for a minute to ensure it has blended well. Enjoy.
