Fun with colours!

Mix and stir, I wonder what colour playdough we will make this week? We have to measure the ingredients using Mrs Peters mug! 

Perhaps you would like to make some for home...



2 cups of plain flour

2 cups of water

1 cup of salt

4 teaspoons of cream of tartar

1 tablespoon of vegetable oil

Cook on a low heat, stirring continuously until the mixture thickens.

Wow, we made yellow playdough...


We found lots of other ways to explore colour:

yellow cornflour,



green and yellow rice and



red and blue pasta.



We have also used rollers, sponges and lego in the coloured paint!
