Play Dough

Warning - this is not a dinner recipe!!!

This afternoon Miss Hope and I were after something to do - so we made play dough!  So easy and fun!  Perfect to use with the Tupperware kids' cookie cutters, as pictured above.  Keeps in an airtight container or ziplock bag in the fridge for up to 6 months.

1 cup plain flour
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
1 tablespoon oil
1/2 cup salt
1 cup boiling water
Food colouring

Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl.  Done!

Tip: Add the food colouring to the boiling water then add to the other ingredients, it makes the colour incorporate much more easily.

Hey Ness, I've tried this one too and it is great! If you've got a child who loves to help and also loves experimenting with mixing colours, it's fun to just add the food colouring to the white mixture and see what happens!! (From experience of course!! :)
