Homemade Playdough Recipe

Those who don't believe in magic will never find it. - Ronald Dahl

If you never have made homemade are missing out on one item that should be added to everyone's Bucket List of Parenthood.  A basic recipe usually takes just a few minutes to make and can produce a dough that will inspire hours of creativity and smiles.

Today's homemade playdough recipes can be pretty fancy.  You can add vanilla can add neon colour food can add glitter...

Homemade Playdough Recipe

2 cups flour
1 cup salt
4 teaspoon cream of tartar
2 cup water
4 Tablepsoon cooking oil
2 teaspoons food colouring or two packets dry cool-aid mix (without the sugar)
optional: glitter, cinnamon for scent, or 1-2 teaspoons vanilla essence

1.  Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
2.  Pour into a frying pan coated with a little oil.
3.  Stir constantly until a ball forms.
4.  Remove pan from heat.
5.  Turn out playdough onto a working surface and knead until smooth (this step children enjoy doing for you...just make sure the dough is not too hot.)


Playdough can be kept up to six months in an airtight container in the fridge.

The End!
