Playdough: Small Batch Recipe

On our Ramadan calendar today the activity was to play with some playdough. Not very Ramadanish, I know, but definitely a good activity to keep the little ones busy.


This recipe is honestly amazing, makes the softest most pliable playdough and I just had to share. This is a small batch recipe, the perfect amount for hours of fun. It takes 5 minutes and is a no cook recipe. What could be better than that?



  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 tblsp salt
  • 1/2 tblsp cream of tarter
  • 1/2 tblsp vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup boiling water
  • Few drops of food colouring¬†


In a bowl mix together flour, salt, cream of tarter and oil and add in the boiling water. This will be extremely hot, so mix carefully with a spoon until it’s at a manageable temperature. Add in your colouring and knead well until soft and smooth. Store in a ziplock bag or air tight container while not in use.
