Easily the best Playdough I have made, it turns out extremely smooth and is really quick to make, I can make 3 batches in 10 minutes, that 1.5kgs of Playdough!!!

What you need...

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup of salt
  • 1 tablespoon cream of tartar
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Food colouring of your choosing 
  • 1 cup of plain flour 
How you do it...
  • In a saucepan over a low to medium heat, heat up the water, salt, cream of tartar, oil and your food colouring {add as much or as little colouring as you like, the more you add the brighter the playdough}, do not let it boil just heat it enough so the salt starts to dissolve, this will take between 2 and 4 minutes.
  • Take is off the stove and pour into a heat proof mixing bowl.
  • Add the cup of flour and using a spatula mix and fold into the liquid.  It will seem too wet to start with, but resist the urge to add more flour, within a minute it will start to thicken up.
  • Tip it out onto a floured bench to and kneed it until it is completely smooth.  It will be quite hot to start with so please be careful and not let you're children help out until it has cooled down.
  • Once cooled store in and airtight container for up to 6 months Enjoy!!!
* One quantity make 500 grams of play dough
