I had to make playdough for my daughter’s Nursery School. This recipe takes minutes to make, and is totally simple!

Microwave Playdough Recipe

2 cups flour
2 cups water
1/2 cup salt
2 TBSP oil
2 TBSP cream of tartar

Mix in a plastic bowl. Microwave on high for 6-8 minutes, stirring after each minute. Continue in microwave until the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl, eventually forming a lump. Using rubber gloves, knead dough until it is smooth. Add colouring if desired.

Stores in plastic bag for 2-3 weeks refrigerated or not, and can be frozen too.
