Play Dough

Why bother buying play dough when it’s so easy to make?  Although this is made using edible ingredients, it’s not for eating!  Remember to always follow the Kitchen Monsters Code when you’re in the kitchen!

Ingredients: 1 x cup flour, 1/2 x cup table salt, 2 x tbsp cream of tartar, 2 x tbsp vegetable oil, 1 x cup water, food colouring
Special Equipment: Large pan

Add all the ingredients into the pan
Slowly heat the mixture stirring all the while
Add food colouring a few drops at a time until it changes colour
When the mixture starts to bind together remove from the pan onto the kitchen counter and leave to cool
Store in an airtight container and don’t eat it!

Kitchen Monster Top Tip: Don’t add too much colouring otherwise the mixture will get too sticky to use
