Cooked Playdough

This playdough is very smooth in texture, and will not leave a salty, or oily residue on one’s hands.

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 2 Tablespoons cream of tartar
  • 1 cup cool water
  • 1 Tablespoon cooking oil
  • Food colouring (optional)

Put flour, salt, and cream of tartar into a heavy-bottomed saucepan, and whisk to combine.

In a separate bowl, combine the liquid ingredients together.

Add the liquid ingredients to the pot, stirring constantly.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens and forms a sticky ball in the centre of the pot, about 3 to 5 minutes after mixture has warmed.

Let cool, and knead till smooth.

Store covered in fridge.

Bubbles!

Not food…for making wonderful solution for blowing bubbles (way better than store bought)!

  • 1/2 cup Sunlight liquid dish detergent (honestly, this works the best)
  • 2 + 1/2 cups water
  • 1 Tablespoon glycerine (buy at a pharmacy)
  • 1 + 1/2 teaspoons granulated white sugar

Stir all ingredients together until well mixed. Makes about 3 cups.

Make bubble wands out of anything:  pipe cleaners, twist ties, coat hangers, electrical wire, your fingers, string…get creative!
