Play dough- activity time

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
