Does anybody know the recipe to make your own? Got Lewis some for Christmas and he loves them!

Thought me might like making some up too.

I use the easiest recipe in the world, and believe me when I make it every other day I can guarantee it works every time :lol: No weighing etc either - and haven't known anyone to fail using my recipe 8)

1 cup flour - plain is best although SR works too
1 cup water, with whatever food colouring you intend to use in the water
I tablespoonish of oil - baby oil works wonders also and smells really nice too 8)

Put flour in bowl, add oil - I normally just tip bottle up and guess how much roughly. Dont worry if you put too much, it just makes it smoother !
Slowly add the water until forms a dough!
Et voila!!

You can make it different textures like glitter, oats, sawdust etc to the flour, and different scents to the water.

Keep the dough in airtight tupperware in the fridge and it should keep for almost 5 days!!!!

I had a recipe years ago, I think it was something like the one Fiona has put on here, and it was good and easy to make, but I haven't made it in years. I might make it again, as Jack has never played with anything like that.

Are you sure there is supposed to be so much water? I made it yesterday, with 1 cup flour and 1 cup water, plus a little colouring and oil, and I had to add loads more flour as it was way too runny. Probably at least another cup of flour had to be added.
I made it in blue, green and red, all with vanilla flavouring.

You don't need To use all the water. That is just in case. Prob only use bout third if cup but that us hard to measure out :). I quite often double mixture out as using it with 6 kids at once

That's where I went wrong!lol Even though you said to add the water slowly, the first one (green) I just bunged all the water in in one go. For the other 2 colours, I only added a bit at a time.
That's me, always rushing the job, and then it ends up taking longer! :roll:
