Playdough Recipe

With LOs and myself being sick, we were not able to go out to play so we had to make our own fun at home... literally.

Running short of ideas on how to entertain the restless LOs I decided to make some play-dough. LOs love playing with their play-dough but what we recently bought is already all dried up and useless....

After a few searches online, I came across a recipe that was very simple and turned out fabulous ( we left it out and played with it for hours and it still stayed nice and soft ! ).

1 cup plain (all-purpose) flour

½ cup salt

2 tablespoons cream of tartar

2 tablespoons vegetable oil (I used olive oil as I didn't have any vegetable oil)

1 cup hot water with food coloring added

1 teaspoon vanilla/almond essence (optional)

Put all the ingredients into a large bowl. Mix until smooth and even.

Store in an airtight container (a Ziploc bag with the air pressed out is good).

ps. Spot the LOs matching Stella Mccartney for GapKids t-shirts. Nice, aren't they ?
