Play dough – ready in minutes

The last time we had a good play dough recipe I managed to lose it.  This one I’m putting here for safe keeping.  This recipe came from Fjord’s school last year.  It is very quick and easy and makes a great play dough.


1 cup flour

1/2 cup salt

1 cup water

1 TBS cooking oil

2 tsp cream of tartar

food colouring

glitter (optional)


Mix dry ingredients, add liquid

Cook mixture over low to medium heat for 3 – 5 min

Keep Stirring till mixture forms solid ball.

Divide for different colours and add food colouring and/or glitter

Knead and play
