Working Together for Success


What do you need?

All you need is some dough!

You can either buy some playdough, or make it yourself quickly with flour and water.

  • Change the texture by adding some cooking oil
  • Change the temperature by either warming in the microwave (take care it is not too hot in the middle), or keeping it in the fridge over night
  • Change the smell by adding different things: coffee, cocoa powder, milkshake powder, spices, herbs

Alternatively you can make a cooked dough recipe which will last longer;
