There is no way I could have a squelchy and squidgy afternoon without playdough. I've never made it before so I had no idea how I would get on. I found an amazing microwave playdough recipe though (I'm afraid I'm not sure where I found it) and it all turned out really well. So well infact that I thought I would share it with you.
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tbsp oil
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup salt
- 1 tsp cream of tartar
- Food colouring and glitter
I mixed up all of the ingredients apart from the food colouring and glitter in a microwavable plastic bowl. I wasn't sure what the consistency should be like but as my finished product turned out well, I presume it should look like this:
I then put the mixture into the microwave for 2 minutes and gave it a stir before putting it back in for a remaining 2 minutes. In our staffroom we have a 700w microwave so timings may vary depending on what you have.
I then shaped the mixture into balls and left it to cool for a while. Once it was cool enough to touch, I made a hole in the middle of each ball.
In the end we made cookies and cupcakes with our dough but the possibilities are endless.
