Play Dough

Play dough cutters are great, but without cutters your child has the opportunity to use their imagination even more! Their creations can be anything they want...cakes, dinosaur footprints or maybe even a wiggly worm at the bottom of the garden. ‘How many wiggly worms to we have 1, 2, 3, 4.

Do you have a childs knife and fork set…use this to make patterns, shapes and finer details.

What you need:
2 cups Plain flour
1/2 cup salt
1/5 cup luke warm water adding in increments

2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp. cream of tartar
Food colouring, Essence
