A Recipe for Play Dough

Messy Monkeys Play Dough

Messy Monkeys Play DoughPlay dough is a fantabulous messy play matter, great for little hands learning to manipulate tools and develop their find motor skills.

We use different cutters and colours, add textures and even change the smell to provide a great source of fun and learning for young children.

Make SPACE play dough with black paint and glitter or HALLOWEEN play dough with green paint and cinnamon spices – it’s brilliant stuff!



We’ve found that it’s hard to chill out and allow your child to be truly creative when you’ve spent a fortune on shop bought dough; mixing those lovely, expensive colours together can mess with some mum’s orderly minds.

Messy Monkeys comes to the rescue of frustrated monkeys everywhere with our cheap and easy play dough recipe… mix away kids; stick it in water, cover it in paint… ahhh now everyone can relax!

You need…

  • 2 cups of plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons of cream of tartar
  • 2 tablespoons of cooking oil
  • 1 cup of salt
  • 2 cups of boiling water

Just stick it all in a mixing bowl and mix like crazy. When it cools down you can add paint to colour it, or glitter to make it sparkle, or spices to make it smell. Enjoy!

Safety note…

Due to the high salt content of play dough this is not to be eaten please!
