Mother and toddler playing with play dough

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

Step 1

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.

Step 2

Add the oil, and knead well until the dough leaves the sides of the pan and forms into a ball.

Step 3

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!
