Nursery: Play dough recipe

2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
2 cups water
1 tablespoon oil
Food colouring or children’s non-toxic paint

Microwave Method:

Place all ingredients in bowl and stir. Microwave for 5 minutes, checking and stirring each minute. Allow to cool for a few minutes then knead until smooth.

Oven top method:

Place all ingredients in a pan and heat gently, stirring continuously. When the mixture comes away from the side of the pan it is ready. Allow to cool for a few minutes and knead until smooth.

We sometimes add interesting scents such as lavender or rose and add extra interest with materials like glitter or herbs

Store in an airtight container.
