When the kids where younger, I often made their own playdough.
Now they are older, they play with playdough less often, but it’s still a success during the holidays! This time I made a cinnamon scented pink batch. Fun ( and a few quiet moments for me) guaranteed!
You will need: one cup of salt, 2 large cups of flour, 2 large cups of water, 5 tablespoons of sunflower oil, 1,5 teaspoon cream of tartar, a large pan and a wooden spoon. Optional: foodcolouring, scents).
Put all ingredients (except the foodcolouring) into the pan, and stirr above medium heat. Stirr well! Within a minute or two you will see your mixture changing into a playdough-like ball.
Remove from pan and place on your workspace. Allow to cool, kneed thoroughly and add foodcolouring according to taste.
Now, let’s play. When done, store in an airtight container and use again and again.
You can use this recipe for very young children too. They love to feel, kneed, smell, touch….taste….., and you don’t have to be afraid they put anything poisoness in their mouth if they decide to taste it!
