I really dislike store bought playdoh, it smells like chemicals and if my kids are going to play with something that's almost edible I'd quite like to know what is in it! So here we make our own playdough....
1TB cooking oil
2t cream of tartar
2t food colouring (or you can use non toxic paint powder)
Mix over a low/med heat until the dough is no longer sticky and comes together as a big glob. Take off heat and knead on a floured board.
I find this way of making it gives the best results and it seems to keep a bit longer. I store mine in an airtight container in the fridge.
N3 asked (yet again) for black. She seems to have a thing about black baking (she also asked for a black birthday cake), a little unconventional but a welcome change from all the pink ;)
