I have fond memories of my mum making play dough for my brother and me when we were little. It kept us occupied for hours, for the cost of some flour, salt and food colouring.
In my career as a child care professional, I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve made play dough for the children, and I’ve tested all sorts of recipes. Some work better than others. My mum made some a while ago using coconut oil and a Thermomix. It was incredible! Soft, pliable and lasted for ages. But expensive!
So, for the more budget-conscious amongst us, this is my favourite ‘knock-up-a-quick-batch-on-a-rainy-day’ recipe for super-quick and easy no cook play dough!
