Playdough

playdough

Yes playdough!
I know you can’t eat this so you may wonder why I’ve put this on my food blog, but it is made in a very similar way to a lot of food recipes, and is a handy little thing to know how to make if you ever have children over to stay or have your own.

And why was I making playdough you ask? Well for Science- my science lesson at school our homework was to make playdough. Sounds like hard work going back to Uni doesn’t it? 🙂

This recipe is one given to me by the tutors at the University and worked quite well. I added glitter to some of mine, and as well as colouring also flavourings. To the green one I added peppermint and green glitter, which went down the best in my class. To the black one I also added rice- to give it a slightly different texture.

Ingredients
Your will need:
1/2 cup of salt
1 cup of plain flour
1 tablespoon of cream of tartar (Cream of Tartar is a natural powdered
raising agent for use in scones, drop scones, soda bread and a wide
range of other recipes)
1 tablespoon of oil
I cup of boiling water (from the kettle) mixed with
some food colouring

Method
1. Put all the dry ingredients in a bowl and then mix vigorously with the hot water.
2. Continue stirring until mixed thoroughly.
3. Turn out of the bowl and play!
4. To store put into little plastic sandwich bags or wrap in cling film.
