Easy Peasy Play Dough

All kids LOVE playdough, I am yet to  find a child who doesn't, or an adult for that matter. The stuff you buy from the store is usually hard, and a ludicrous price for the amount you get. It is so easy to make at home! It lasts forever and feels so much better. I prefer the cooked kind, this is my go to recipe. 

Play Dough


2 C Plain flour
4 Tablespoons Cream of Tartar
2 Tablespoons Oil
1 C Salt
2 C Water
Food Colouring


  1. Combine flour, cream of tartar, oil and salt in a large saucepan
  2. Add the food colouring to the water and then add to the saucepan as well
  3. Stir over medium heat for 3-5 mins or until mixture congeals. 
  4. You can tell if it's ready when you touch it and its no longer sticky
  5. Tip out on to bench and allow to cool a little before kneading it a bit. 

Tips and Tricks

  • Add glitter
  • Divide the mixture in half and make different colours
  • Add some scents like vanilla (be careful my kids thought it smelt so nice that it was good enough to eat) 
  • Store in a plastic container or bag. It will last for months.
