There are a couple of kids playdough recipes here on the Fresh In The Kitchen website, but this one is the best for a smooth and silky result. The perfect activity to keep the kids entertained during school holidays or weekends.
2 tablespoons of cream of tartar

1 cup boiling water
food colouring of your choice (we love Blue as it makes Smurf Playdough)
2 cups flour
Mix first 5 ingredients together in the order as above.
Add your flour.
Mix and knead.
Then play! And look at the positive learning outcomes of playing with playdough…
