How to make Playdough

Jackson has started to get into playdough recently. He doesn't normally sit for very long but it does make a really good rainy-day activity. From working in nurseries, I have learnt how to make my own. It really is so easy and it also doesn't dry out as much when you do your own! 

What you need: 
1 cup water
1 cup plain flour  
1/3 cup table salt
2 tbsp oil
2 tbsp cream of tartar
A few drops of food colouring 
A few drops of vanilla extract (optional but does make it smell better)

All you do is put all of the ingredients into a saucepan on a low heat and constantly stir until it starts to look like playdough. 

As soon as it is cool you can start playing!

I really need to get a few playdough utensils for him to play with too, as he used to be fine just making do with what we had at home (rolling pin etc.) but now he is doing it more and more, I think we can treat him a bit!!

Let me know if any of you make some!
