I know it’s not strictly cooking, and you certainly wouldn’t want to eat it, but I couldn’t resist…


  • 1/2 cup of salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tbsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 cup of boiling water, with a little food colouring mixed in
  • glitter, for extra magic

Mix all the ingredients together, and allow to cool. The great thing about this play dough recipe is that there is no cooking involved.
