Play Time! Playdough Recipe

I mentioned last week that we'd been getting crafty and creative here at Lavender HQ, and one of our current faves is playdough. It's super easy to whip up a batch yourself and keep it in the fridge, so I thought I'd post the recipe. There are variations, but this is the method I use with no drama:

You need:

   3 cups plain flour
   1 cup salt
   2 tbsp oil
   approx 1.5 cups water
   a few drops of food colouring


   1. Mix dry ingredients together
   2. Combine water and food colouring
   3. Add sufficient water until dough is pliable but not sticky

Super duper easy, it makes more than enough for four kidlets to play with and you can store it in a plastic bag in the fridge for at least a couple of weeks.

Also, for something fun, you can cut shapes out of the dough using cookie cutters and bake them slowly in a mild-moderate oven. Fun times ahoy!!
