    Here goes...


    2 cups flour
    4 tablespoons of cream of tartar
    2 tablespoons of oil
    1 cup salt
    food colouring
    2 cups water

    Mix ingredients on a stove for approx 3-5 minutes until it forms a ball. Let it cool and keep it in an airtight container.


    2 cups of flour
    1/2 cup of salt
    3/4 cup of warm water

    Mix ingredients together in a bowl. If the dough is a little dry add water a little at a time. Make a ball of dough then flatten it to about a one inch thickness in the shape of a circle.
    Press the hand or the foot or a shell, a leaf or other object into the dough to make an imprint. Gently lift it off and bake this at 325 degrees in the oven until hard or let it air dry a couple days. After that you can decorate it. The dough can be coloured by adding some food coloring.


    2 cups water
    6 cups cornflour
    food colouring

    Mix all together. It's great for the kids to get messy with and it's safe if they eat it - not that it will taste any good!

    Bath Tub Paint

    2 tablespoons of sugar
    1/3 cup cornflour
    2 cups cold water
    1/4 cup clear dishwashing liquid
    Food coloring

    Mix the sugar and cornflour in a small pan, slowly add water. Cook over low heat stiring until mixture becomes a smooth, almost clear gel - about 5 minutes. When mixture cools, stir in soap. Scoop equal amounts into containers and stir in fool coloring.

    Coloured Rice (great for filling softdrink bottles)

    1/2 cup Uncooked white rice
    food colouring
    1/2 teaspoon vinegar

    Place 1/2 cup of rice, 5 drops of food colouring and 1/2 teaspoon of vinegar into a bowl and mix. Place onto a tray and bake for 45 minutes to dry out.

    Peanut Butter Play Dough

    2 cups of peanut butter
    2 cups of powdered milk
    3 tablespoons honey

    Mix together all above ingredients. Add more powdered milk, one tablespoon at a time if it is too sticky

    Finger Paint

    1/2 cup flour
    2 cups water
    food coloring

    Mix the flour with a little bit of water and smooth out any lumps. then put it over some heat adding the remaining water. Keep stirring until it gets smooth and shiny. Separate into different baby jars or yoghurt containers and add drops of food colouring to make different colours.

    Paper Mache

    strips of newspaper

    Mix the flour and water together. Dip the strips of newspaper into the flour/water mixture.
