      Wondering how to make the same playdough as our Creative play program?

      Here’s the recipe:


      You need:

      • 2 cups plain flour (all purpose)
      • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil  (baby oil and coconut oil work too)
      • 1/2 cup salt
      • 2 tablespoons cream of tartar
      • 1 to 1.5 cups boiling water (adding in increments until it feels just right)
      • gel food colouring (optional)
      • few drops glycerine (essential!)


      • 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 continuously until it becomes a sticky, combined dough
      • Add the glycerine
      • Allow it to cool down then take it out of the bowl and knead it vigorously for a couple of minutes until all of the stickiness has gone. * This is the most important part of the process, so keep at it until it’s the perfect consistency!*
      • If it remains a little sticky then add a touch more flour until just right
