Play dough recipe

Get your hands dirty and bring smiles to your kids’ faces with this great art and craft kids activity making play dough. Smoosh it, mould it and roll it – you can create wild and whacky shapes with play dough that you and your kids made yourselves!

What you need:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup cooking salt
  • 1 tbs of cooking oil
  • 1 tbs of cream of tartar
  • food colouring

Number of players:


Mix the flour, water, salt and cream of tartar in a saucepan over medium heat until thick.

Allow the mixture to cool and then add the oil and knead well over a floured cutting board or similar.

Divide this blob evenly into as many colours as you’d like to make.

Add food colouring to each ball until it is just the colour your child is looking for.

That’s it!

Allow the children to let their imaginations go wild.
