If you have run out of playdough, it is raining heavily and you don’t have cream of tartar (sigh) here is a playdough recipe that worked for me.
- 2 cups of flour
- 1/2 cup of fine salt
- 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
- a few drops of food colouring
- 1 cup boiling water
Add all the ingredients except the boiling water together. Slowly start adding some boiling water in small increments. Use a spoon to mix it all together.
At some point you are going to want to use your hands. Wait a bit for the boiling water to cool down. If time is an issue, use the fridge for a few minutes.
Start kneading the dough until you have the correct consistency. If it is too gluggy, add more flour.
