Making playdough! We make a lot of playdough here on a weekly basis and thought we’d share our favourite recipe. 

You will need:
2 cups plain flour
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
½ cup salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1.5 cups boiling water
Food colouring (optional)
Mix the flour and cream of tartar in one bowl. In another bowl mix the salt, oil, hot water and food colouring (optional). Combine the wet and dry ingredients, stirring until combined.
Allow to cool, then take it out of the bowl and knead the dough until smooth and all the stickiness is gone. This is the most important part of the process, so keep at it until it’s the perfect consistency! (If it remains a little sticky then add a touch more flour until just right). A tip from our staff: if you choose to add food colouring, throw on a pair of gloves before kneading to keep your hands from getting stained!
Store in air tight bag or container in the refrigerator.
