Homemade Play Doh

By Go-Repairs

Add and stir your dry ingredients before you add your oil and water.
Stir the mixture until all the water is absorbed.
When it's smooth we're ready to put it on a low heat.

Step 1

It's a good idea to mix the powder parts of your dough first, this will ensure a better mix. Start by adding 2 cups of flour, 1 cup of salt and two sachets of cream of tartar, which is the equivalent of two teaspoons, to your pan. Now we add the 2 table spoons of oil and our two cups of water. Stir the mixture to remove any lumps until you have a smooth liquid that looks like a runny porridge.

While on the heat keep stirring.
The dough is not quite ready yet.
The dough is starting to come away from the pan - nearly ready.

Step 2

Once you have a smooth mixture turn on your heat and set to a low temperature. Continue to stir, your mixture is ready when it all comes away from the sides of the pan in a big lump. If it’s sticky to touch then leave it in a few minutes more. When it's ready you need to take it off of the heat and allow to cool.
