Kids party and mobile creche fun!

A picture guide to making play dough with your under 5's

Start with 2 cups of plain flour, 1 cup salt, 2 cups of water, 1 table spoon of oil, 2 tablespoon cream of                               tartar (home baking section) and food colouring.
Start with a non stick pan and add your 2 cups of flour, we use a large spoon to add flour to the cups.            

Pour the salt into the cups, taking care to  assist with pouring

Help your little one put 2 cups of water and the tbsp of oil

Add the food colouring

Stir on a low heat, I take saucepan  off the heat for my little one to stir, empty

Make sure you have a suitable container, although a plastic bag will do ( store out of childs reach).

It's play time and play dough will bring many hours of fun and will last for ages.


This recipe is so much better than shop bought versions, it lasts longer and doesn't crumble easily.
 We take it to most of our christening, birthday and wedding bookings, children of all ages enjoy play with play dough why not have a go your self.
If you have older children you can do a recipe sheet and let them make the play dough in a home experiement style, following instructions.
