Homemade Playdough Recipe

Playdough

Kids love to play with modelling clay and it is really good for encouraging their creativity too.

Here is a recipe for a home-made Playdough that you can make from ingredients that you can find easily in your kitchen.



Note: Although this recipe is safe to eat, it does contains a lot of salt, so please discourage your children from eating the playdough.

Ingredients

Put all the ingredients together into a saucepan, and mix them.

Heat them gently, stirring all the time for about 3 minutes, or until the mixture resembles mashed potatoes and starts to pull away from the sides of the pan. Turn off the heat and let it cool for a couple of minutes, then knead it on a floured surface until it is smooth.

The playdough can be stored in an airtight container and will keep for a few weeks.
