Making playdough

So today we felt like making a big huge mess!! So we decided to make lots and lots of playdough! I'm trying to get Lexie more involved in activities so we thought this would be perfect! 

So basically grab an old pan and these following ingredients

Two cups of plain flour 
One cup of salt
1 tablespoon of oil 
1 cup of water
2 spoons of cream of tartar




Add it in a saucepan and put on a low heat until It goes gooey and doughy. Once it goes like that take it out ( watch its not too hot) and kneed for a few minutes in to a ball. 




You can add food colouring to jazz up the playdough and make it different colours.

Glitter or sequins

If you wanted to make your senses go wild you could use lavender, peppermint, ginger or vanilla.

It brought me back to my working nursery nurse years making it for all the kids. Raiden had so much fun making it with me too.




When it had all cooled we got it out with all the playdough cutters. Lexie was a bit cautious at first but she soon grabbed it squished it around, then you guessed it straight in to her mouth ewwwwww! 




So the blue playdough was a massive hit, Raiden wants to try out more colours! Hes told me to write a list so i don't forget hehe.
