Super Soft & Easy Play Dough by Jess


So many of you keep asking how I make my play dough and get it so soft at my classes! Well here’s how:

Ingredient needed

  • 2 cups of plain flour
  • 1/8 of a cup of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of veg oil
  • 2 table spoons of cream of tartar
  • 1 and a half cups of boiling water
  • Food colouring


  • Set the kettle away
  • Put all the dry ingredients into a large bowl And mix
  • Add the oil and mix
  • Put a tiny amount of food colouring into a cup, pour boiling water in and stir.
  • Pour water over dry ingredients and mix, add the other half of cup of water.
  • Mix until the play dough is one lump and leave for 10 mins or until you can handle it without burning your hands.
  • You want to nead the play dough while it’s still warm as the finished product will be much softer.
  • Nead until lovely and soft.

It’s takes about 2 minutes to make and then about 5 minutes to Nead.
