Basic Playdough Recipe

Little ones will have twice as much fun with playdough if they make it themselves! Then they can sculpt, shape, roll and press it into anything they want.

  • 2 cups plain (all-purpose) flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 teaspoons oil
  • Food colouring

Place the flour, salt and cream of tartar in a large bowl, add the boiling water and oil and mix well to combine.

Turn the dough out and knead for 2-3 minutes or until smooth.

To add colour to the playdough, separate the dough then add a few drops of food colouring before you start kneading to make different colours.

Playdough Tips

  • Try wearing disposable plastic gloves on your hands when kneading the dough to prevent the food colouring from staining your hands.
  • Playdough will keep for 1 week if covered in plastic wrap and kept in an airtight container.
  • Playdough will keep for months if stored the same way as above, and the container kept in the fridge
