  1. Living in Queensland, I often don't even mix it over medium heat just combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix it up, just another little bonus for our hot climate.

  2. With Easter just around the corner, I like to give our play dough a chocolate twist. Instead of adding a few drops of our favourite food colouring we add a tablespoon or two of cocoa instead.

Recipe Notes

Add a few Easter cookie cutters and plastic eggs to your play dough tools and let the kids imaginations run wild!
