Paint & Playdough!!!!! Lock Rss

Hi there mums,

Well they aren't exactly tasty treats for us to eat but they are a treat for our little ones to play with.

I discovered this paint recipe in a "That's Life" mag. While i must be honest & tell you I haven't tried it myself, my MIL did & it turned out great. The grandkids loved it!!!

1/2 cup cornflour
2 tbls white sugar
2 cups cold water

Stir constantly over low-med heat until it boils & thickens.
Allow to cool, spoon into separate containers & add the colors you like!!!


This Playdough recipe is from the packet of Cream of Tartar.

2 cups of flour
4 tbls cream of tartar
2 tablespoons cooking oil
1 cup salt
food coloring
2 cups water

Mix all ingredients in a saucepan & stir over medium heat for 3-5 minutes, until mixture congeals. Roll up into a ball & presto, there you have it.

I have made the playdough before & it turns out just great. A lot softer than the shop brought ones!

Have fun.

This 'cooked' playdough is the best recipe. I have always made this and then keep it in an old formula tin with a plastic lid. Most people need to find a use for all those empty tins! It stays so fresh for ages. I sometimes add a little glitter to the mix when it cools and knead thru. Adds a little sparkle to it!

Just wanted to say that I made this playdough this morning, and it turned out great! I think my daughter is a bit young for it yet, but oh well, I enjoyed playing with it! LOL!

Just a quick question....I don't have an empty formula tin at the moment, so I am hoping that an ice cream container will do the trick to store the playdough you keep it in the fridge or just in a dry cool place?
Just wondering...thanks for the think it was on the back of my cream of tartar package all along!!!
I jus keep it in the pantry. It still lasts a long time. An icecream container should be fine..have fun!

Thanks for that info, I will make some this weekend! Don't know if my daughter is too young still. She is 17,mths and everything still goes straight into her mouth.
