Foolproof home made playdough


Messy play is always my go to for a fun activity that keeps little hands entertained with laughter. 

Here's a tried and tested playdough recipe that takes 10 mins.

What you need:

2 cups all-purpose flour

A large bowl

1 cup salt

4 teaspoons cream of tartar

2 cups boiling water

2 Tablespoons of melted coconut oil ( vegetable oil works too)

Food colouring optional for pretty colours. 

You can also add essential oils ( lavender/ eucalyptus), or sensory smells like lavender or coffee grounds)

Air tight container e.g. sandwich bag or tupperware 

What to do:

Mix the flour, salt, creme of tartar and coconut oil together in a large bowl.

Add the hot water and mix together ( grown up hands only until it cools).

Keep mixing all together until it binds and forms playdough texture ( 5-7 mins)

If you are adding food colouring, we then roll into a snake and make separate balls (4 or 5). Use a different bowl for each desired colour and add colour you want. Keep mixing the playdough until it becomes a solid colour.

Happy playing ☺️
