Making your own playdough is much easier than you'd think. An extremely cheap activity for your little ones with hours of fun to be had.


What you'll need:

1 cup of plain flour

1 cup of water

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda

Half a cup of salt



 1) Place all the ingredients in a saucepan on a low heat. Stir continuously until the mixture thickens & forms a firm dough texture.

 2) Leave to cool.

 3) If adding food colouring, make a well in the centre of the dough, add a drop of food colouring, fold the dough over the food colouring and knead until it is coloured all over.

 **Store the dough in an airtight container such as a plastic bag or box, then keep it in the fridge. The dough should keep for up to 12 weeks if refrigerated.[galleryId]
