Today Primary 1 helped make play-dough and we used this as inspiration to write a recipe to tell others how to make it too! 

We talked about recipes having a list of ingredients so that you know what to buy, instructions to tell you what to do and measurements to tell you how much of something you need. 

If you would like to try our recipe at home you will need…

  • Plain flour
  • Water
  • Table salt
  • Cooking oil
  • Food colouring

Instructions –

  1. Add 2 cups of plain flour to a mixing bowl. Then add 1 cup of salt.
  2. Mix these together. Then add half a cup of warm water, 1 spoon of oil and your food colouring.
  3. Knead it together (this is the messy part!) If it is too sticky, add a little more flour.

When you are finished, it should look something like this. Have fun getting messy!
