Never done this before but going to do it with kids in summer hols.
Just found this recipie:

2 cups flour - does it matter if plain of SR??
1 cup salt
2 tblsp cream of tartar
1 tablespoon oil (does it matter what type?)
red food colouring

I know I sound thick but have to get it right.

Is this one you don't have to cook? I hate the cooked stuff.

No you have to cook.

Says mix in pan
Cook over medium heat
Allow to cool and knead

I did one with baby lotion once - a recipe that was given by our toddler group supervisor. It was lovely - anyone heard of it and remember it as I would love to do that one again

Mix the food colouring with the water unless you want a marbled effect or lots of kneading

I've got three little darlings (9, 6 and 3) sitting to the dining room table playing playdough as we speak - guaranteed hours of fun. ( This is ELC stuff though not homemade).

This weather had better sort itself out - it is AUGUST not October.
