Today stones were demanded, so we pulled out the dough, stones and lolly sticks to make some creative shapes.
I love home made dough I find it much softer and I am not so precious about it too (I feel myself twitching if they start shoving things into bought play dough - whats that about???)
There is a recipe here on The Imagination Tree but this is the one I use below and I always like to add a bit of glitter!
Glitter dough – infinitely better than normal dough, basically add a small pot of glitter when mixing the flour and salt together!
2 cups of plain flour
4 tablespoons of 'cream of tartar'
2 tablespoons of cooking oil
1 cup of salt
2 cups of boiling water with the food colouring added to it
Might not come together but gather and knead for a bit and its great. Allow it to cool in a bag as I find this better and it keeps for ages.
