Homemade Playdough; no cook, no tartar, no hassle

What you need...

  • 8 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 tbsp table salt
  • 60ml warm water
  • food colouring (optional)
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

These ingredients will create one ball of homemade playdough, so increase the quantities as necessary

How to prepare...

  1. Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl mix together the water, a few drops of food colouring (if using) and the oil.
  2. Pour the coloured water into the flour mix and bring together with a spoon.
  3. Dust a work surface with a little flour and turn out the dough. Knead together for a few minutes to form a smooth, pliable dough. If you want a more intense colour you can work in a few extra drops of food colouring
  4. Store in a plastic sandwich bag (squeeze out the air) in the fridge to keep it fresh.
