No Cook PlayDough Recipe

A recipe for no cook playdough.

This recipe does involve boiling water so will need a grown up's help.

You will need:

125g of flour
90g of table salt/cooking salt.
1 tablespoon of cream of tartar
1 tablespoon of oil (vegetable or olive)
1 cup of boiling water
A few drops of food colouring.
A large mixing bowl (the food dye shouldn't stain, but I used a glass one just in case)
A mixing spoon.


Place dry ingredients in a bowl, add the food colouring and then mix thoroughly with the hot water. Once the dough starts to come together, it's easier (for me) to get my hands in and work the dough until it's the desired consistency.

Can be stored in an airtight container or sealable bags for a month or so.

If the dough starts to feel brittle or is losing it's cohesiveness, just roll together and place in fridge for a few hours and it becomes pliable again.

My little girl loves it
