I organised a Women’s High Tea and I wanted to do a fun and unconventional icebreaker. So I came up with an idea… Using playdough to make something that represents yourself!
Making the playdough was actually very easy and fun to do.
My rough guide:
Place these in a large mixing bowl
- 1/4 cup salt
- 2 cups plain flour
- 1 tbs cream of tartar
In another container, mix these
- 1 cup water
- 1 tbs of oil (whatever you have)
- Few drops of food colouring
Add the water, oil and food colouring to the large mixing bowl. Stir with a wooden spoon.
It should feel doughy and not too sticky. If it is too sticky, add more flour. If it feels dry, add water very sparingly – a little goes a long way.
These proportions make a big hand full, see the pictures below to get an idea.
Place in the fridge in a container to set for twenty minutes or so.
Experiment with different colours!
For the high tea, I split the playdough into little balls to share among different tables.
It was a fun afternoon!
