A quick, easy and non toxic recipe for play dough!
- 1 cup plain flour
- 3/4 cup salt
- 3 drops your choice of food colouring
- 1 tsp vegetable oil
- 1 cup cold water
- In a bowl, combine the flour and salt.
In another bowl, combine water, oil and food colouring.
- Pour all the liquids in with the flour and salt (including food colouring) and mix together (with a utensil…unless you want food dye all over your hands…)
- Kneed the dough with your hands until smooth. Ensure that when your child (or yourself) have finished playing that you keep it in an air tight bag somewhere cool. I use the pantry in a zip lock bag and it lasts 4-5 weeks.
This is my favourite recipe for play dough, not to mention it is ridiculously cheap to make and my two and a half year old daughter loves helping me with it. It's a great, quick recipe with hours of fun on the finished side of it! (Go do your washing - quick, they're occupied!)
