Playdough recipe (NO COOKING)
Playdough recipe (NO COOKING)

1 cup plain flour 1/4 cup salt 3 tsp lemon juice 1 tablespoon oil (vegetable or olive) 1/2 cup boiling water food colouring I mix the food colouring in with the boiling water so the colour is more consistent. Then just mix all the ingredients and as you are kneading it on the bench put a little flour down if it is sticky. I keep my playdough in the fridge as it lasts longer. My kids help me make it!

I love bubbles and so do my kids! This is very simple and can be done as a bath activity. You just need a straw or a few straws tied together and some bubble bath mixture.

We tried this. It was a bit tricky but children loved doing it. I would probably recommend that you do this with children 5+ years.
