- Homemade Play Dough Recipe: It's ideal for toddlers to have fun with, It's not for eating!
Method: Put all of the ingredients in a pan and cook over a gentle heat stirring constantly. The play dough will start to thicken, when you can touch it and it doesn't make a mess on your hands and is sort of dry then its done.
I then divided it into four with a knife
With my finger I made a little hole and poured a little of the food colouring in and then kneaded it to spread it through the dough. I used blue and green food colouring because that is what I had in the cupboard. Once this was done I repeated on the other 3 parts alternating the colours.
I immediately set two aside as back up. The other two I set in front of Florence and let her have fun! I gave her a rolling pin, some pastry cutters and a mixing bowl. This activity kept her entertained for about 45 minutes!!
Tip: For glittery play dough , put the glitter in at the end. To change colours for example making green, use a batch of yellow play dough and put a tiny drop of blue in the middle of a ball of play dough then as the child plays with it the dough will becomes green.
