no cook playdough, ready in minutes.


  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp cream of tartar
  • 375mL boiling water
  • food colouring of choice


  1. Add dry ingredients to a bowl. Slowly add in water 1/2 a cup at a time. Mix using a wooden spoon as at this stage it is very hot.
  2. Once all water is added or playdough has formed good consistency, add you food colouring.
  3. Carefully once playdough has cooled slightly, start mixing by hand. This will work in the colour. Turn it onto a lightly floured surface if you need to. You should end up with a nice soft playdough.


store in an airtight container to maintain playdough for a length of time.
