Because everyone likes Playdough— Make Your Own Terra Cotta Warrior

Bored today? Maybe you should spend the afternoon building terra cotta warriors out of playdough. Try our handy recipe below. For inspiration, browse through the past photos featured on the site or through our flickr page.

This is an excellent playdough recipe which is fun to make and never fails to provide amusement on a rainy afternoon!

You will need:

1 cup plain (all-purpose) flour

½ cup salt

2 tablespoons cream of tartar

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 cup water with food coloring added

1 teaspoon vanilla essence (optional but it makes the playdough smell nice!)

Put all the ingredients into a large saucepan, and stir over a medium heat until the dough forms into a ball. Allow to cool, and then knead until smooth.

Store in an airtight container (a Ziploc bag with the air pressed out is good).

Going-away present idea
Small bags of pre-made playdough also make a good “going-away” present for a toddler’s birthday party – make up some large batches in different colors and divide it up. We have bag toppers here!

Playdough mix
You can also make this up as a gift mix. First color the salt with food coloring and leave to dry. Mix the dry ingredients and put into a Ziploc bag with a label explaining how to make up the playdough. We have recipe labels here!

Important – Please Read !

We have been advised that homemade playdough is a potential danger to household pets and must be kept safely out of their reach at all times.
