Family Fun Tips – B

Here is an idea we have received via Family Fun Tips for the cold weather and though you might like to try this at home.


As the song says: ‘do you want to build a snowman?’  Some of us have had snow recently, but even if you haven’t, here’s a lovely idea.  Why not make snowmen with homemade, no salt, taste-safe, no cook playdough?  And as it’s edible, there’s no waste!

Here’s the recipe:
3 cups flour of any flour (gluten free if you prefer)
1 cup cold water
1 tablespoon oil (olive oil, sunflower oil or rapeseed oil)
The flour, water and oil combination alone makes a good dough to play with, but if your little one wants to eat it you could also include some chopped herbs, food colouring, spices, chopped fruit or grated cheese.  Currants make for great eyes or buttons.   Once your little one has created their snow persons, you can then bake and eat them.
