Homemade Purple Spelt Playdough

Omigosh, this was sooooo easy! I remember wanting to buy ‘natural playdough’ online many years ago, but never got around to it!! If only I had known then how easy it was (your kids can help)!

Tonight my daughter complained of being bored and said no to all my suggestions…she wanted to do a craft….I am not crafty so I wondered if there was something that I could whip up in the kitchen…..finally a use for that table salt I share at classes and in private sessions with my clients (as an example of what NOT to bake, cook or season with).

Instead I recommend unrefined salt like Celtic or Himalayan with the synergy of their full compliment of minerals!

Jasmine will tell you all about how we did it (she did most of it)!

Without further adieu……

Homemade Purple Spelt Playdough

1 cup unbleached spelt flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup red wine
1/2 cup water (add an extra half cup if you are not using wine)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons corn starch

Mix flour, salt, cornstarch, oil, wine and water. Cook over medium heat, stirring until dough becomes stiff. Turn out onto parchment or wax paper and let cool. Knead with your hands until playdough consistency.

If you choose not to use wine you can make your own or use natural food colouring, then divide into balls and add a few drops to make various colors of your choosing!.
