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