I’ve got a poorly toddler at the moment, tonsilitis, so time indoors has meant the need for fun activities! What better than Playdough? I tell you what, making your own playdough!

It’s so easy and should last for months in an airtight container, so we made plenty.

Basic recipe (though there are loads out there, some with peanut butter in! I decided not to encourage eating it):

2 cups plain flour
1 cup salt
1 tsp cream of tartar (this is the preservative)
2 cups water with food colouring in
1tbsp cooking oil

Mix it all together in a saucepan and cook on medium heat, stirring constantly until it forms into a dough, remove from the heat and knead! Et voila!
