Recipe for home made play dough.
The children absolutely love play dough and if you keep it on a tray it won't end up all over the carpet! It will keep them amused for ages! ;) Store in the fridge in a plastic bag and it will last a week. Play dough is good for developing fine motor skills and helps to build muscles in little children's hands. It will tread into carpet so be careful and put a plastic mat down or use in a space where mess doesn't matter.
3 cups plain flour
1 cup salt
1 sachet creme tartare
3rd cup of oil
3 cups of boiling water
Add food colour and glitter if you like after it cools. The children like to mix food colour into it and watch it change.
It's even better when served warm! Enjoy!
