Play-Doh is basically nostalgia tucked inside a bright yellow container: the salty smell, primary colours, and endless opportunities. For more than 60 years, parents and kids have turned this moldable dough into handmade creations of all kinds.
1 14 cup white flour
1/4 cup of salt
1/2 Tbsp cream of tartar
1 cup boiling water
1 1/2 Tbsp oil
food colouring to colour playdough
Mix flour, salt, and cream of tartar in a medium bowl.
Add boiling water, oil and food colouring.
When mixture forms a ball in the bowl, turn out and knead on a slightly floured surface.
Store in airtight container or plastic bag.
For variety, add Kool-Aid powder to dry ingredients instead of food colouring. It will smell great!
