This recipe for homemade playdough is simple and affordable, and only uses three ingredients – it also smells great too.

You will need:

  • 125ml cheap hair conditioner
  • 250g cornflour
  • A few drops food colouring

How to make it:

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the conditioner and cornflour until well combined and knead until a soft dough forms. Adjust the amounts of each if needed.
  2. Divide the dough into equal parts and work in a few drops of food colouring to each part.

Note: this recipe is not edible, so is best used for older toddlers and under supervision.
