How to make playdough


  • 2 cups Edmonds Standard Grade Flour
  • ½ cup salt
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 300ml boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Food colouring of your choice

Note: You can halve this recipe and make two different coloured batches if you like.


Whisk the flour, salt and cream of tartar in a bowl.

Pour the boiling water into a measuring jug and then stir in the oil and a few drops of food colouring.

Pour onto the dry ingredients and mix until everything is well combined and the mixture is sticky.

Set aside to cool for 10-15 minutes.

Once cooled, tip the mixture out onto the bench (or onto a chopping board) and knead vigorously for a few minutes until the dough is smooth and no longer sticky.

Store in an airtight container or wrap it in plastic wrap so it doesn’t dry out.
