Giving your child play dough will make him occupied for hours. The fun will be multiplied if you prepare the playdough with your child at home!
You will need:
3 cups of flour
1 ½ cups of salt
3 cups of water
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
1 tablespoon of cream of tartar
Few drops of food colouring
Mix all the ingredients in a large saucepan and cook it over medium heat until you can remove the dough away from the edges of the pan and it thickens so it becomes difficult to move the spoon. Don’t forget to stir it intermittently while heating. Let the dough cool in the pan until you can hold it in your hands. Give it to your child and let him enjoy hours of making figures with his special homemade playdough.
