How to make no-cook play dough video tutorial!

This week is an exciting week! I’m teaming up with NurtureStore and Sun Hats and Wellie Boots to bring you a week filled with new and fun ways to play, explore and learn with play dough! Will you join us?

My first contribution to play dough week is a video tutorial of our easy, no-cook play dough recipe! You will need to turn your volume up a little as the sound quality is quite low. Please don’t laugh at me- it’s my first video attempt!

Watch this (or read this popular recipe post) and then make some play dough ready for the ideas to follow this week!

    Been making homemade playdough for over 20 years. Made it for my own children and now my grandkids. I use a packet of Koolaid (generic) instead of food coloring. It smells good and it doesn’t stain your hands.

    love the video…. koolaid is a great idea(in reply to the post before last)!!! I have a book called The Stuff That Fun Is Made Of….which has lots of good ideas for clay, paint play dough etc.

    Love your video, you’re such a pro! If I tried to make one there’d be little hands ready to ‘help’ me in every shot! 😉

    Great idea! I made some jello playdough recently which I love. Smells good and nice colour. Keeps really well too. Looking forward to your ideas.
