Does anyone have a reliable recipe?Thank you!
This one always works for me: 1 cup of salt; 2 cups of flour; 2 teaspoons crème of tartar, 2 cups of boiling water with your food colouring of choice in it.Mix all ingredients together and knead. Add a bit of flour if too stiff or a tiny bit water if too dry.
I find the above with the addition of some glitter also goes down well.
Thank you very much, shall give it a go tomorrow!
I also add one tablespoon of cooking oil.
Ooh yes sorry - add a tablespoon of cooking oil too!
I got complimented, believe it or not, after making playdough from this recipe for a playgroup I help to run.I didn't have a tablespoon of cream of tartar though... only put in about 2 tsp.
Good resource www.playdoughrecipe.com/jello-playdough-recipe/Site is just loads of playdough recipes, I made this jelly one with baking powder and a standard block of jelly melted in the hot water. It was fantastic, lasted for ages and smelt Devine.
I use one I learned when training in nursery years and years ago2 cups plain flour1 cup salt1 table spoon cream of tartar1 table spoon vegetable oil2 cups of water mixed with food colouring if requiredPop in a saucepan and cook on a medium heat stirring well until it comes together like a good dough. If sticky knead in flour.Whatever you do, don't use Self Raising flour. We had a horrific experience with it expanding every morning after a rookie used SR instead of plain.
Thank you all. I am clearly a playdoh newbie, I had never considered there would be different recipes, let alone a website full of them.How does the jelly playdoh turn out? Is the consistancy more jelly-like, or does it just smell of jelly? It sounds a bit like dd would try to eat it.Thank you for your help.
