Make your own: Play dough

We discovered a Youtube clip that showed us how to make our own play dough.

Since I'm a baker, the ingredients needed were already in my kitchen. Aha! Cheap toys that makes toddlers happy! (It's definitely a WIN-WIN situation).

The play doughs that I made.

Our boy was superbly excited!

Hubby made these animals. 

And I naturally, made a "cake".

Who said play doughs are only for children? :P

Here's a clip on how to make your own Play Dough:

There are plenty more that you can find on Youtube. I followed this one.

2 cups flour
2 cups water
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp cream of tartar
1 cup salt  (do get those cheap salt cause a cup of sea salt will cost you a bomb!)

1) Mix all ingredients into a saucepan before you turn on the stove.
2) Then stir under medium heat til it's all combined and sticky.
3) Remove it from pan onto a board. (I used an old chopping board.)
4) Knead the dough while it's still warm.
5) Break them into a few doughs.
6) Add 2-3 drops of colouring onto each dough and knead til colour combines.

Last but not least... PLAY! :D

Oh of course, it's edible because it's made of edible ingredients. (I'm not encouraging you to feed your toddler with it but in case your toddler accidentally puts it into his/her mouth, you won't panic that badly.)
