Our favourite play dough recipe

What you need:

  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 cup salt
  • 2 cups boiling water (add slowly until it feels right)
  • 1 tablespoons of tartar
  • Food colouring


  • Mix the flour, salt, cream of tartar and oil in a large mixing bowl
  • Add food colouring to the boiling water then into the dry ingredients
  • Stir all the ingredients
  • Knead it vigorously for a couple of minutes until all the stickiness has gone. This is a very important part of the process, so keep at it until its the perfect consistency. If it remains a little sticky, add a touch more flour
