Rainy days!

Apparently we need it to rain every day until December in order to replenish the water supplies, but I am sure it will stop raining soon but until then here is an idea to fill some of the time!

I found this recipe on,  it really is simple and if you add a few drops of vanilla essence it smells nice too!

1      Minute Playdough recipe:

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup of salt
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 tablespoon of cream of tartar(Cream of Tartar is a natural powdered raising agent for use in scones,drop scones,soda bread and a wide range of other recipes)
  • 1 tablespoon of oil
  • 1 cup of boiling water (from the kettle) mixed with
    some food colouring (OR a the contents of three blackcurrant dazzler fruit tea bags for lovely fruity rich purple)

What to do:

Put all the dry ingredients in a bowl and then mix vigourously with the hot water.

Makes wonderful playdough which lasts for ages in little plastic sandwich bags.

Have fun!
