  • 2 cups organic plain flour
  • 4 tbsp cream of tartar
  • 1 cup fine Himalayan salt
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1-2 tbsp spice or superfood for colouring (ideas include turmeric, spirulina, beetroot powder, carob powder)


Mix your superfood powder and the flour making sure there are no lumps. Add the remaining dry ingredients and mix well. Add to a pot with the wet ingredients over low-medium heat and stir continuously until a ball of dough is formed. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Store in an airtight container in the fridge and if it dries out a little, simply add a small splash of water. Should last approx 3 months. Note: the saltiness should deter babies from eating the mixture. As you are using natural superfoods and spices to colour your play dough such as turmeric, be mindful of your play area.
