Play Dough - No Cook

Make your own play dough without cooking

NO COOK PLAYDOUGH #1

You will need:

2 cups of plain flour

4 tablespoons of ‘cream of tartar’

2 tablespoons of cooking oil

1 cup of salt

2 cups of boiling water

Method:

Combine the plain flour, salt and cream of tartar

Add water, food colouring and oil

Mix and knead until all of the ingredients are combined

Add food colouring

 

NO COOK PLAYDOUGH #2

You will need:

2 cups of plain flour

1 cup of salt

1 tablespoon of cooking oil

¾ cup of cold water

2 drops of food colouring if desired

Method:

Combine the plain flour and salt

Add water, food colouring and oil

Mix and knead until all of the ingredients are combined

If the consistency is too wet, add a little sprinkle of plain flour

If the consistency is too dry, add a few drops of water

 

Food colouring alternative:

If food colouring isn’t your thing, chop up your desired colour: fruit, veg or flower!

Place about half a cup of your chopped goodness into a saucepan with about a cup of water, ‘bring it to the boil’, then simmer for approx 10-15 minutes, until the food turns to liquid.

Or you can visit your local green grocer or maybe your health food shop and ask if they stock veggie powder!

Let the goodness cool, then pour it through a strainer into your playdough.
