So as promised in my earlier post, here is a great, simple recipe for making your own play dough. It only needs a few ingredients – which you will likely have in your pantry cupboards anyway and is a cheap alternative to the bought stuff. It is a bit stickier than the real Playdoh, and it doesn’t have the amazing smell but it is a decent alternative.
This is a great, fun and messy activity to do with your little ones!
The recipe is as follows:
250g plain flour
2 tbsp oil.
Put it all together in a bowl and mix it up – get your hands stuck in and knead it altogether – or if you want to avoid the sticky messy hands yourself, get the kids to do this bit!!.
Then add some food colouring in to give it some colour.
I would suggest splitting the above amounts into maybe 4-6 smaller balls of dough so that the colour is more vibrant.
We only split ours into two so the colours are a little more pastel.
Here is a short video of us making it and getting all messy!
Now all thats left to do is start modelling!
