Playdough for Zachary and Lillian

My daughter, Alisha, has requested this recipe for my grandies, Zachary and Lillian. OK they are only 7 months old but they already know how to put stuff in their mouths, so plaudough they shall have.

Super Babies
  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1 Cup Salt
  • 4 Teaspoon Cream of Tartar
  • 2 Tablespoons Oil
  • 2 cups Water
  • Extras – Food Colouring, Glitter, Spices etc
  1. Mix Dry ingredients in a saucepan
  2. Add water, colouring then oil.
  3. Heat gently turning the mix slowly until it is smooth and leaves the side of the pan.
  4. Don not panic if it starts to go lumpy – it will smooth out as it cooks
  5. Knead with lightly floured hands.
  6. Store in an airtight container.
Cooking Variation – I have heard that you can make this by putting the dry ingredients in an electric mixer bowl and adding Boiling water – with the mixer running until it is smooth and leaves the sides of the bowl- and it cooks up just fine.  Must try this method  Did it and it works – too easy
Variation -I have also made this without colouring then divided into smaller amounts to make several colours.
