Playdough


Great recipe for teaching kitchen safety even with the youngest of Guides.  However best done on a camp or all day activity as the dough needs time to cool down before use.

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cooking salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon of cream of tartar
  • 1 tablespoon of cooking oil
  • Food colouring
Mix the flour, water, salt and cream of tartar in a saucepan over medium heat until thick. Allow the mixture to cool and then add the oil and knead well over a floured cutting board or similar. Divide this blob evenly into as many colours as you’d like to make. Add food colouring to each ball until it is just the colour your child is looking for. That’s it! Allow the children to let their imaginations take them away.
