    Default Playdough

    Hi lovely bub hub chefs
    i really dont know how to make playdough everything ive tried is totally awful. But im determined to make some tomorrow. Does anyone have any good recipes that you can make in the microwave that are tried and tested?

    Ive looked all through the forums in case there was already a recipe but couldnt find anything so thought this was the best place to come

    Hi There!

    After YEARS in Child Care.......

    This is the BEST and easiest I've found!

    2 cups of plain flour
    4 tablespoons of 'cream of tartar'
    2 tablespoons of cooking oil
    1 cup of salt
    2 cups of boiling water
    food colouring
    *Just pop it all in a mixing bowl and mix!
    *It looks as though it is not going to mix well at first but hang in there and throw it onto the bench to knead, and it will come together really nicely.

    yep I agree.

    The recipe is on the back of the Cream of Tartar packet/cylender thingy. Dont boil it ... just use boiling water.

    Works for me every time, and lasts ages if you store in an airtight container.

    Also if you put glitter through it, the kids love it.

    i use the same recipe but i do "cook" mine on the stove. i just use normal tap water and cook on medium for what seems like ages (about 10 minutes or so) stirring. you do need to work to get the lumps out before it all comes together or you get lumpy playdough. i also add a little bit of flavouring (peppermint or vanilla usually) as well as colour so it smells better as i really don't like the smell of playdough. i use vanilla essence (fake) but you could use an essential oil. i also store mine in an airtight container but in the fridge. the kids love the cool playdough and i find it keeps forever in their. the kids still play with some i made back in march for ds1's birthday.
