Coffee Scented Playdough

This coffee scented playdough recipe can also be baked to preserve and harden creations.

What you need

4 cups of Plain four
1 cup of Salt
1/4 cup of Instant coffee
1 1/2 cups of Lukewarm water


Dissolve the coffee in warm water. In a bowl mix the flour and the salt together. Add 1 cup of water and the coffee to the mix. Mix it until a smooth ball forms. Add more coffee/water if needed.

The dough should be smooth when mixed correctly. Store in a airtight container.

For baking: Place the finished creation in a 280 degree oven for about 1 hour or until hard. Finish off your master piece by sealing it with some varnish. These make great tree ornaments.
