How to make long-lasting play-dough!

We love, love, love play dough, but it can get expensive having to relpace it all of the time when it dries out or gets mucky!


Did you know you can make a very good, cheap version yourself?


You will need…

1 cup plain (all-purpose) flour

½ cup salt

2 tablespoons cream of tartar

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 cup water with food coloring added

1 teaspoon vanilla essence (optional but it makes the playdough smell nice!)

How to…

Put all the ingredients into a large saucepan, and stir over a medium heat until the dough forms into a ball.

Allow to cool, and then knead until smooth.

Store in an airtight container to prevent drying out.
