Eco play dough

Afternoons are a great opportunity to stay at home, not use the car and use the fresh air and natural sunlight!

Playdough that is store bought can contain chemicals and artificial ingredients not friendly to children or the environment.

So….make your own!

It’s a great activity for you and your child to take part in as they can enjoy making the dough, adding the colours & then creating with it!

Here is a great recipe I found on the natural parenting website:

1 cup flour
1/4 cup salt
2 tsp vinegar
2 tbsp oil
1/2 cup water
Food coloring

Mix all dry ingredients together

Whisk in water and vinegar over low heat ( I used a fork so less mess and sticking)

Mix until good texture

Remove and let cool

Add colour of your choice and divide mixture if you want several colours.

Wear gloves when mixing!!

Enjoy making this Eco friendly recipe
