Homemade naturally dyed playdough for our nature tots group tomorrow!
I adapted a recipe by the www.instagram.com/thejoyjournal (check out her gorgeous nature play ideas!) to make a large batch and to use fresh veg / berries instead of powdered for cos its what we had on hand.
The colours don’t show well in the photos on such a grey day but they are so lovely and vibrant!
Such a great recipe because it uses all store cupboard ingredients rather than cream of tartar / glycerin in most recipes which I never have in.
Just mix together:
– 2 cups of flour
- 1 cup of salt
– the juice of half a lemon
– 8 tsps of coconut oil
– 1 cup of warm water
– A couple of tablespoons of natural colouring – beetroot powder / turmeric etc (I just used a chunk of fresh beetroot / handful of elderberries blended with the water, oil and lemon then added to the wet to the dry ingredients).
Mix, the knead and add any extra flour or water if needed until resembles your perfect playdough consistency and voila.
Enjoy – my little ones did and I hope the whole group will tomorrow! L x
