There are many playdough recipes out there. A quick google search or peek on pinterest will yield tons. I had to try out a few before I found one that I loved. I haven't had any success with the no cook kinds. They always end up really sticky. My favourite is a cook kind from playdoughrecipe.com with a few variations. I use alum because it's cheaper than cream of tartar but you can completely leave it out. I also use koolaid instead of food colour because it makes it nice and scented and sensory.
-2 cups of plain flour
-2 tbsp of cookin oil
-1 tsp of alum
-1 cup of salt
-2 cups of water
-1 package of koolaid or food colouring (add to water)
-Place all the ingredients in a medium pot, cook slowly on medium until the playdough thickens
-Remove from pot and carefully knead. I use the spatula at first as it's HOT!
-Now you are done!
Sometimes I add glitter to it as well.
