 Hey readers,

It is really easy to make your own playdough and perfect for a rainy day activity. It doesn't take long to make and most items you might have already in the cupboard. Kids love playing with playdough and it is a sensory activity as well. 

How to make playdough.

What you will need. 

* 8 tbsp of plain flour. 

* 2 tablespoons of salt. 

* 60ml warm water.

* Food colouring. 

* 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil.


1. Mix the flour and salt together in a bowl. 

2. Next add the water and oil. 

3. kneed the mixture together for about 10 minutes so that it is smooth. You might need to and more water and flour until the 
consistency is smooth but not sticky. 

4. Add the food colouring of your choice and mix that in so that planted into the playdough. 

5. Put in a covered bowl or bag in the fridge until it is chilled enough to use.

  1. This is one of those posts that appears so simple but might end up a lifesaver for a busy parent who needs to amuse the children. Thanks for sharing. I am old enough to remember plasticine and actually saw some in a charity shop the other day and was very almost tempted to get some for me not my rapidly growing teens and young adult. #MMBC

  2. I once did a recipe for a gluten-free playdough - homemade is cheap and easy to make. #MMBC

  3. My two used to love playing with playdough when they were younger. In fact I think they would still probably play with it if I made it now. lol With the summer holidays coming up I think this could be very handy for a lot of people. x

  4. Oh, this sounds like such a cool activity to do, I mean the actual making of the playdough not just playing with it. #MMBC

  5. We used to make lots of different types of playdough! My boys love the scented ones my sister used to make using Jell-O gelatin.

  6. The upside of making playdoh is you can make a really big ball and make something massive with it! #FortheloveofBLOG

  7. That really is simple. Does the food colouring stain their hands at all? Thanks for linking up to #forhteloveofblog

  8. Ooo this sounds fab. Most recipes require cream of tartar and I always forget to buy it. This is perfect that it is a recipe which doesn't need it. #fortheloveofblog

  9. This is perfect timing for the summer holidays. We love playdough in our house. x

  10. Does it stick in the carpet? If it doesn't I need this recipe! Thanks so much for linking up with #fortheloveofblog - hope to see you again next week!
