Rainbow Playdough

Playdough is a good old fashioned activity, that can provide hours of fun. I remember as a child, the joy of new playdough, I loved choosing the colour I wanted! Yesterday we made a fresh batch of dough. I divided it into six pieces, making each piece a different colour. The girls loved the sculptural options all the colours provided.  Very inspiring, and beautiful, our rainbow of dough! It is a good lesson on mixing colours too, as in time the dough no doubt will become one (brown) mass.


1 cup flour

1 cup water

2 teaspoons cream of tarter

1/4 cup salt

Food dye


Combine ingredients in heavy bottomed saucepan, stir over low heat while it thickens, keep stirring until you can no longer stir and a dough ball has formed. Remove from saucepan and kneed well. When cool give to kids!

Keep refrigerated in air tight container.
