One Minute Playdough

You may have seen my recent post on Bubble Dough; while I was making that I was curious to see what washing up liquid [dish soap] would do when mixed with plain white flour. To my amazement what it did was to turn into a wonderful soft playdough. 

 The red colour of the washing up liquid sort of turned the dough a murky pink colour, so I added a little red food colouring to enhance it. It feels and moulds just like regular playdough, and Jake's been enjoying playing with it in his regular way...




This literally takes a minute to make. Add 1 cup of regular flour, and a couple of squirts of washing up liquid (dish soap) - add gradually to the flour and mix and knead until you get the desired consistency.

The other reason I love it is because it has no salt in it does not dry your hands out, and it smells lovely too. :) I think we're going to be making this a lot, a playdough session never fails to help with a stressful day, or to unwind at the end of a busy day, or just for fun of course!  I urge you to try this; its so easy and so much fun.
