Playing with dough will keep your toddler occupied for ages. Making it together extends the fun even longer (and saves money)!
You will need:
- 250g plain flour
- 2tbsp cream of tartar
- 50g salt
- 140ml water
- Food colouring
- 2tbsp oil
Steps to make playdough
Mix together the dry ingredients in a saucepan, then add the water and food colouring (bear in mind this will stain a wooden spoon), mixing until smooth.
Add the oil, and knead well until the dough leaves the sides of the pan and forms into a ball.
Wait for it to cool before use. Use a wipe-clean mat or PVC tablecloth to avoid staining your table. Then get out the cookie cutters and a rolling pin and away you go!
