I’ve made a few variations of this recipe throughout the year – orange for Halloween, white for Christmas – and now black with glitter and stars for our Constellations theme last week.
And it’s AMAAAAAZING!
It’s so easy to make – so here you go – here’s all you need to get started:
- 1 cup of plain flour
- 1 tbsp cream of tartar
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1/4 cup of salt
- 3/4 cup of water
- Gel food colouring (optional)
- Glycerine (optional)
Simply mix the first 4 ingredients (flour, cream of tartar, oil & salt) until combined.
Add the gel food colouring (if using) to the water and then SLOWLY add the water, bit by bit, mixing as you go – until you get the perfect consistency.
If you want it to be quite a glossy playdough then add a drop of glycerine to make it shiny.
Finally, add any objects you wish (eg glitter, beads, stars etc).
