How to Make Your Own Play Dough

You need:

·         2 cups flour

·         2 tablespoons vegetable oil

All you need & what you need to do for fun at home...

·         1/2 cup salt

·         2 tablespoons cream of tartar

·         1.5 cups boiling water (add more if needed)

·         Food colouring


·         A few drops glycerine (adds more shine!)

What to Do:

1.    Mix the flour, salt, cream of tartar and oil in a large mixing bowl

2.    Add the boiling water

3.    Stir continuously until it becomes a sticky, combined dough

4.    Add the food colouring and glycerine

5.    Allow it to cool then remove from bowl and knead vigorously for a couple of minutes or until all stickiness has gone. This is the most important part of the process, so keep at it until it’s the perfect consistency

6.    If it remains a little sticky then add a touch more flour until just right
