#158: Make Playdough

To make your own homemade playdough, you will need help from an adult and these ingredients:

500 mL (2 cups) flour
500 mL (2 cups) water
250 mL (1 cup) salt
30 mL (2 tbsp) oil
60 mL (4 tbsp) cream of tartar
Food colouring (if you want to make coloured playdough)

Combine the above ingredients in a pot and ask an adult to cook it on the stove over medium heat. Heat until the dough starts to leave the side of the pot. Cook for a few minutes more. Let it cool. Once cool, knead the playdough until smooth. It is now ready.

Hint: After playing with your playdough, store it in a sealed bag. It will last a long time.

This activity promotes tactile awareness and creativity.
