Both Megan and Ben love play doh. From an early age we have often got it out and have got lots of cutters, rolling pins and bits to play with.
What I have done for the last few years is make my own play doh. It is so easy to do and can be varied by adding different food colours or flavourings.
It can then be kept for ages in a airtight box in the fridge and used wherever Megan or Ben want to play with it.
The recipe is:
2 cups plain flour
1 cup salt
2 cups water
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 tablespoon oil
Food colouring or flavouring.
Put all the ingredients in a pan and stir over heat until dough is formed.
Take out of pan and knead for a couple of minutes. (Be careful as it can be hot.)
Store or use straight away.
So easy to do and older children can help too.
