Easy Playdough

Here's a playdough recipe that i found and adapted. It's quick, easy, the playdough lasts about 4 months and the kids love the bright colours.


1. 1 Cup of flour
2. 1 Cup of water
3. 1/2 Cup of table salt
4. 2 tbs cream of tartar
5. 1 packet of sweeto/koolaid (Any powdered juice, if you cant find powdered juice, you can use 1/4 cup of liquid sweeto/coolaid)

Throw all the ingredients into a pot, simmer over a low heat while stirring continuously, the mixture should start to form a ball, this usually takes +/- 5 Mins. then tip the ball of dough out onto the counter top and knead it for about 2 mins, it may be a little hot, be careful.

The kids love how the playdough smells, the colours are brighter than when you use normal food colouring, you don't get stained hands and if you're like me, with a 1,2 and 4 year old that like to taste everything, its safe for them to eat so no need to worry. I usually make 2 batches at a time, and this is enough playdough for my 3 to share nicely.
