The best playdoh I have made in a long time.
Cinnamon Sensory Play doh- smells good, feels good, looks good!
Unfortunately I am a random recipe kind of person, so this will probably never ever turn out the same again but here goes.
2 cups of flour, 1 cup of salt, 2 table spoons of cream of tartar, 1/2 cup of Cinnamon. 1 tea spoon of oil & 1 cup of boiling water. Throw it all in the bowl and mix mix mix. . . It will look like a sticky gungy mess but keep mixing- Add your colouring to your water if you want pretty coloured playdoh!
We did Black for something different & its meant to resemble Easter chocolate.
Here is the secret. after you have a lurgy sticky mess, you knead in corn flour. Now anyone who has used corn flour knows it is good for goop and good for thickening, it also has a smooth texture.
I added a layer on the bench and a layer over my gulag mass of doh then used my hands to knead it, added more again etc. and kneaded it in.
Corn flour is great in play doh, it makes it smooth but when you try any types where the water & cornflour mix it is a huge task to UN-lump the cornflour, when you do it this way then let it sit for a while it ends up being - THE BEST play doh EVER!
Plus, even better made the night before it has a lovely sweet smell of Cinnamon.
You can add glitter or sequence as we did.
Here is how we played after Easter....
Using cup cake shells Dimples rolled it into balls and made some delicious smelling cupcakes. Then we used left over chocolate wrappers and Easter egg foil to make pretend chocolates. Then Dimples tricked Adventures Dad with his home made chocs.
The as usual, it was foot prints, tracks and fossils. Dimples asked for some bugs and dinosaurs and made imprints, the black playdoh had turned into mud (but it still smelt great) and the thing with corn flour playdoh is that it lasts a bit longer, UN-refrigerated without going sticky.
