Here you are - courtesy of Playcentre message board in NZ.

Salt Ceramic Playdough

Ingredients:
1½ cups Salt
¾ cup Cornflour / maize
1 cup Water

Mix ingredients together in a pot, then cook over a low heat, stirring frequently until th mixture becomes solid. Turn out and knead immediately.

This makes enough for three to four children.

Leave for 36 48 hours to harden.

This playdough can be moulded into shapes, made into beads and used for making hanging decorations. Make any holes that might be required in the finished product before playdough is left to harden. It can also be painted after it has hardened.
If you want you can colour with food colouring when you add water, less colouring for a pastel colour is usually more desirable. e.g. hint of red makes pink, hint of blue makes baby blue.


SPARKLING SALT CLAY

1 cup cornflour
Approx. 1½ cups cold water
2 cups rock salt (regular salt can be used)
1 cup water

Thin cornflour with 1½ cups cold water until, it is as thick as gravy. Boil salt in 1 cup water. Add the cornflour mixture to the boiling salt water, stirring constantly to avoid lumping. Cook until mixture forms a large mass. Turn out onto wax paper and cool. Store in an airtight container. (Finished project may be dried in 250 F on for 1 hour, or allow to air dry.)


CORNFLOUR CLAY I (PORCELAIN TYPE)

Ideal for items under 3/4" thick

2 cups (500 ml) cornflour
2 cups (500 ml) baking soda
1¼ cups (310 ml) cold water

In a saucepan, combine cornflour and baking soda. Gradually add water until the mixture is smooth. Heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture reaches a moist mashed-potato consistency.

Turn onto a plate, cover with a damp towel. Knead clay when cool enough to handle. Clay is now ready to shape into craft projects.
Children can add food colouring to make different colours. Roll out the dough into 1cm thick (under ½ inch) and have children make hand prints. Takes a long time to air dry or dry in a warm oven (200ºF) but it may brown a bit. clay may crack if items too thick or bulky

Place 3 cups flour, 1-2 tabs oil, plus colouring agent if colour desired. Then add ~3/4 cup boiling water stir well finish off by kneading with hands.
Use either Tempura paint powder or food colouring/ dye to add colour also sometimes we add an essence/ oil e.g. vanilla, lavender etc.. or make black dough and add glitter

These recipes for playdough are courtesy of Playcentre (my favourite place), New Zealand,

Individual Uncooked Playdough

1 cup Plain flour
½ cups Salt
1 – 1 ½ Tablespoons Cooking Oil
~ ¾ cups Boiling Water

Mix the dry ingredients and cooking oil together in a large bowl, then add the boiling water. Stir well until the mixture leaves the sides of the bowl. Add more flour if the mixture seems too sticky, then turn out and knead.

Uncooked Playdough - 1

1½ cups Salt
1½ tablespoons Cooking Oil
3 tsps Cream of Tartar *
3 cups Boiling Water
3 cups Plain flour
Colouring

Mix the first four ingredients together in a large bowl, then add the flour. Stir well until the mixture leaves the sides of the bowl. Add more flour if the mixture seems too sticky, then turn out and knead.

Uncooked Playdough - 2

3 cups Plain flour
1½teaspoons Cream of Tartar *
3 tablespoons Cooking Oil
3 cups Boiling Water
Colouring

Mix the dry ingredients and cooking oil together in a large bowl, then add the boiling water. Stir well until the mixture leaves the sides of the bowl. Add more flour if the mixture seems too sticky, then turn out and knead.

* Only need to add Cream of Tartar if you intend to keep dough.

Note: By adding Baking Powder (approx 3 teaspoons) to the above uncooked playdough recipes you will get a softer feeling/ textured dough.

We used to love letting the kids free with extra flour/oats etc (they'd pretend to be baking), glitter and what ever else was around!! Making colourless playdough was also loved.

Can I use corn flour for play dough or does it have to be plain flour?

Child I work with is allergic but still want her to experience this (its when she eats it but I don't want to take the risk incase I turn my back or I miss a bit and its in her mouth)

Im not sure you can use corn flour as when you add water it forms a semi solid which does not hold its form. However she could do corn flour and water and experiment with that/
