Playdoh is a beautiful way to increase your little one’s awareness of shapes, colours and textures. It can help them to expand their imagination, boost creativity and enjoy play. This recipe is made from natural ingredients – most of which you can find at your local Source Bulk Foods Sunshine Plaza– and is safe for kids.


Makes: 1 large ball

1 cup plain flour

1 cup water

2 tsp cream of tarter

1/3 cup salt

1 tbs vegetable oil

Food colouring of choice, preferably natural food colouring


Mix all ingredients except food colouring in a saucepan.

Cook on low heat, stirring. Once mix begins to thicken, add food colouring.

Continue stirring until mixture is thicker and starts to gather on the spoon.

Remove and pour onto baking paper or a plate to cool for 30 minutes.

Knead for a few seconds, then time to play! Repeat recipe to make different colours.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
