Easy home made play dough

A while back George and I ended up stuck at home for a whole day while Phil was at work with all the car and house keys in his bag (those with toddlers will understand how terrifying that concept is – over 8 hours in a confined space – eek!).  So I scoured my pinterest account for some ideas and came up with a play dough recipe that luckily I had all the ingredients for.  

The original recipe is here, but I’ll type it out in grams as I loathe having to waste time converting cups to grams.  

250g flour
273g salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
355ml boiling water
Optional: food colouring and/or scent
I made half a batch and its more than enough for us, and its kept amazingly well in the fridge – no signs of getting past it yet and it must be a good 2 months old by now.  Wilkinsons have some amazingly good value play dough tools as well šŸ™‚
