Make your own play dough
If you don’t bake often, there’s noting worse than finding a bag of unused and way past it’s best flour in the cupboard. Making homemade play dough is a great way to use it up and have some non-toxic dough for the kids (and grown ups!) to play with.
It’s really easy to make too!
What you need:
1 cup plain (all-purpose) flour
½ cup salt
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup water with food colouring added
How to make it:
- Put all the ingredients into a large saucepan, and stir over a medium heat until the dough forms into a ball.
- Allow to cool, and then knead until smooth.
Make sure you store your play dough in an airtight container to stop it from drying out.
