Easy no cook play dough recipe

After much tinkering this is our easy no cook play dough recipe it makes super soft dough that keeps well for over a month in a tightly sealed container.

you will need,

2 cups of flour

1 cup of salt

2 tablespoons of cream of tartar

2 tablespoons of oil

and 2 cups of just boiled kettle water

powdered food colouring (optional)

Add everything together except the powdered food colouring and water into a large bowl. Add a small amount of food colouring to the water if using (half a teaspoon will give a strong colour) then add the water to the dry ingredients and mix. The mixture will now look like a sticky mess!AgfaPhoto

Panic not, go and do some of the hundreds of other things you have to do! or have a nice cup of tea while it cools. When it is cool give it a good knead and your play dough is ready to use.

The great thing about this recipe is that you can easily adapt it to make different types of play dough.  See our other posts for some inspiration!
