The Best Winter Playdough

I have been playing with different recipes to try get the right winter playdough, but getting a white playdough is not easy. Add into this having children with sensitive skin when I did get the colour they ended up with irritated skin.

Until today!!! We had a blast in our Snow Man Factory!

I cannot wait to try snowballs next!

The Playdough felt lovely, was WHITE!! and cleaned up easily, plus it is gluten free. The only downside was it takes a little longer than traditional playdough to make, find the recipe below.

  • 1 cup of cornflour.
  • 1 teaspoon of oil
  • Half a cup of salt.
  • 1 tablespoon of cream of tartar.
  • 1 cup of boiling water.
  • Silver Glitter (if you require sparkle)

Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a bowl, then add water and mix. Leave to cool down until it all sets together, then kneed until soft, if it is still sticky you can add some more cornflour.

This works best if you use a non-metalic bowl.

I would love to see some pictures of what you do with your winter playdough.
