helpful hint #1 -playdough recipe

Okay, every now and then I will be putting in a helpful hint, whether it be recipes of the things we use in playgroup or something that will help you at home with your crafting fun with you children. Today's helpful hint is the recipe of how I make my playdough. Not only is it cheaper to make your own playdough, but then you know what you child could be placing in their mouth!! And lets face it most kids do at some stage.

So heres the ingredients...
4 cups flour
1 cup salt
food colouring to desired effect
1 1/2 cups hot water (mix the food colouring in this water first before adding to the flour and salt)
2 tsp vegetable oil

It's easy. If your dough is a bit sticky just work in some more flour till it isn't sticky.
