Home Made Playdogh

My Playdogh recipe as promised. It provided hours of fun (read peace;-b) and on Saturday, when we needed a screwdriver for the weird screws on our patio roof, I used a bit of the home-made clay to make an imprint that I took to the shop, in order to get the right screwdriver, how’s that for a versatile material:-)

1 cup (250 ml) plain flour

1/2 cup salt

2 tablespoons cream of tartar

1 cup water with food colouring in

1 teaspoon vanilla (to make it smell nice, can be omitted)

Put all the ingredients into a large saucepan and stir over a medium heat until it comes together and starts to form a ball. Allow to cool, then knead until smooth and PLAY!

I find the best way to get the pans clean, is to soak them in water for half an hour or longer. After that the playdogh can be rinsed right off.

Update: I meant to add that here in Denmark, you CAN get cream of tartar… it’s called Vinsyre. I never thought you could and imported a tub from England now and then. But then the rest of you are probably smarter than me and knew all along…
