As promised in yesterday’s birthday party post here is the recipe for home made play dough (enough for at least eight children to play with)
- 3 cups of plain flour
- 3 cups of water
- 3 tablespoons cooking oil
- 6 teaspoons cream of tartar
- 1.5 cups of table salt
- food colouring (optional – I used one and a half bottles of green to get a deep green playdough)
Place all the ingredients in a saucepan at a low heat. Stir continously until the mixture thickens to a firm dough texture.
