How to make your own playdough

 

 

You will need:

 2 cups plain flour

 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

 ½ cup salt,

1.5 cups water (adding a little at a time)

food colouring (optional – this really can get messy!).

Rolling pins and if possible, cutters.

 

What to do:

  1. Mix the flour, salt and oil in a large bowl. If you’re using food colouring, add it to the water then pour into the flour mixture.

  2. Place all the mixture in a pan and cook…

  3. Stir until it forms a sticky dough.

  4. Allow it to cool down then take out of the pan and knead it for a couple of minutes until all the stickiness has gone. 

  5.  If it’s still sticky add a little more flour until just right.

 

 

Then play …  if you want to make items to keep just cook in the oven at 200 degrees for about 1 hour but please check regularly and your play dough will harden and can be painted or decorated

 

 

 Play dough will keep in a fridge in a sealed container for several days
