How to make beautiful comforting natural vegeable dyed play dough


It follows that if we are eliminating the food colouring we are putting into our body then we should think about the colouring coming into contact with our largest organ……..our skin.

I thought I would experiment with natural colouring for our play dough. See my recipe Play Dough.

Pink – I added the juice from boiled beetroot as part of the cup of water in the recipe.

Yellow – I juiced a carrot and added the juice as part of the cup of water. The carrot pulp we fed to the worms.






















Green – I blended some rocket for pesto and ran water through it and added it….

Doesn’t it look so scrummy?

I didn’t want to waste the veg or use the actual veg in the play dough.

It was a cool morning when I made this at home and we all enjoyed cuddling a warm ball of freshly made play dough.
