Free play: Homemade Playdough Fun

Remember I mentioned that we were going to make playdough two weeks ago? Well, we didn't because I was exhausted after converting the storage room into a playroom.
So, we did it this weekend! Big hugs and kisses to Aunty Sharon and Little J for allowing us to make a mess in their lovely home. It was a resounding success. Little Tiger loved it!!
Actually, I think the mummies enjoyed it more..hehe.

Plain dough with recipe for homemade playdough.
The recipe was part of a handmade birthday card for Little J.
We bought him a cute Playdoh kitchen set.

These are the dough after colouring them.

Little Tiger enjoyed squishing the playdough.
In this shot he was flirting with Aunty Sharon.

Tiger's pulling a long face because he's not into sharing yet  :)

And here is my cutie pie:

This is the recipe we used:

  • 1 cup of plain flour
  • 1/2 cup of salt
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil (Aunty S say don't use palm oil cause it stinks. Use Sunflower oil)
  • 1 tablespoon of Cream of tartar
  • 1 cup of water

  1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  2. Add in the wet ingredients and mix well. (we used the blender)
  3. Put mixture into pan and cook over low heat. Stir constantly as it burns rather quickly.
  4. Remove when the dough rolls into a ball and allow to cool a little on the counter
  5. Then knead it till it is nice and smooth
  6. Add colour and essence after the dough has cooled. (We did it with rubber gloves as we did not want green hands!!)
  7. Can be enjoyed immediately
  8. Store in fridge
  9. If it doesn't feel right after some time, toss it out and make a new batch!!
 It was a fun way to enjoy a lazy, hot Saturday afternoon. Tiger dozed off on the way home :)

Thank you for having us!!
