Big thanks for this money saving post go to Sarah Hayward who blogs at Mumra a smashing parenting blog full of great reviews and all things baby related.
In my before baby life I was a nursery manager and spent 15 years looking after children.
Over the years I have made a million batches of playdough, I thought I’d be generous and share my perfected recipe with you. There will never be any need for you to buy playdough again.
This playdough is cooked which in my opinion means it lasts longer than uncooked, simply keep in an airtight container.
You will need
1 Cup of Flour
1 Cup of Water
1/2 Cup of Salt
1 teaspoon of cream of tartar
1 teaspoon of oil
The key tips are these…
- Add the colouring to the water before you pour it in to the bowl, this stops it staining your hands and spreads the colour through the dough.
- Cream of Tartar is necessary it helps with elasticity, don’t be tempted to leave it out.
- Vanilla Essence is a special addition that can be left out but adding it makes the dough smell like shop brought.
