Yes, play dough is extremely child-friendly! You may have to watch the little one because they could put it in their mouth to try. However, with the amount of salt added I don't think they will like the taste and quickly learn that it tastes bad! LOL!

Here is an easy recipe to make play dough - you could also add glitter, flowers, small rocks, scents etc.:

You need:

2 cups plain flour (all purpose)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup salt
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
Up to 1.5 cups boiling water (adding in increments until it feels just right)
food colouring (optional)

Method:

Mix the flour, salt, cream of tartar and oil in a large mixing bowl
Add food colouring TO the boiling water then into the dry ingredients (colour optional)
Stir continuously until it becomes a sticky, combined dough
Allow it to cool down then take it out of the bowl and knead it vigorously for a couple of minutes until all of the stickiness has gone.
Add more flour if it is sticky!
