Homemade Play Dough

Have your kids always bug you to buy them the PlayDoh? Now you can homemade it yourselves! Thanks to some forum members who have been so kind to share the "recipes" and I'm now compiling them and share with all here. Maybe you all can try it out this weekend and have fun playing with your kids.

These are the ingredients for making the play dough.

Ingredients
1) 24 Oz of flour (Wheat flour/Tepung gandum)
2) 24 Oz of water
3) 8 Oz of salt
4) 3 teaspoon cream of tartar (can get from supermarket)
5) 1 Chinese glass table spoon of oil
6) Food colouring (optional)

Steps:
1) Mix the food colouring into the water.
2) Mix ALL the ingredients in a cooking pot
3) Stir the ingredients till smooth.
4) Cook under low fire and constantly stir it till harder
5) When cool down, roll it (like making kueh) and get the smooth dough.
6) Done

Here is another recipe that doesn't require cooking.

1 cup cold water
1 cup salt
2 tsp vegetable oil
3 cups flour
2 tbsp cornstarch
food coloring

These dough can be kept in airtight container for 1-2 months and you may keep in the fridge as well. It's so much cheaper than buying the PlayDoh and it is safer for kids to play with (Strictly no eating!!)

Happy Trying!
