Tips 'n Hints

Get Creative

Add a drop of calming lavender oil, or vanilla to your dough and knead in.

Add glitter, or even uncooked rice; children love the different texture and added sparkle.

Use around the house materials such as straws, sticks, pencils, seeds.  Anything with a textured surface to leave a pattern – eg leaf, edge of a milk bottle, rocks or coins.

What can I do if it dries out or starts to stick to utensils?

Doh Magic is long lasting and very slow to dry out.  If in the event it does dry out or starts to stick to utensils, place a drop of oil on hands; rub hands together, and then knead/ massage dough. Repeat if necessary.  Sticky rolling pin or cutting utensils – lightly oil paper towel and wipe over utensil.  It’s OK to use any type of cooking oil while making or restoring.


What if my child eats it?

Doh magic uses ONLY food ingredients and NATURAL preservatives and is therefore technically safe to eat - however having said that, the product is not made for eating, nor do we encourage you to eat it.    Our ORIGINAL recipe contains wheat flour.  Our GLUTEN FREE recipe is a blend of Rice, Corn and Soy ingredients. 

If your child has been known to eat dough we recommend that you hold off on adding other items like essential oils and glitter as these should not be swallowed.    

Which method is the best - stove top / microwave / no cook?

For the GLUTEN FREE recipe we recommend the no cook method.

For the ORIGINAL recipe we we recommend the stove top method for a great quality dough. The stove top method produces a beautifully soft and pliable dough.  This method typically takes under 5 mins to make up.

If its ease and convenience you are after, then you can’t go past the microwave method also producing a great quality dough.  The microwave recipe will be ready in approximately 1.5 mins.  

If you want the whole tactile experience and no heat from the stove or microwave, then the no cook method is for you.  Great activity for children, however the heat methods produce longer lasting shop quality dough. 

TIP: You can enjoy the tactile experience and still get a good quality dough by adding only half of the required water for the stove top and microwave and let them have a mix with their hands.  Then when done add the remaining of the water and continue the recipe as normal.

When can my child start to play with Doh Magic?

There is no hard an fast rule.  In most cases it is OK from about 18 months when the strong desire to put everything in their mouth has died down.  

Oops kids at play - and now you have dough in the carpet!

So how do you get rid of it?  The best thing you can do is to let it dry out and then scratch it out.  If there is still some left, use soap and tap water, then aim an ultra-violate light on it and the stain will lift (a Shannon Lush tip). Don’t use hot water or cleaning solutions.

How much does one Doh Magic packet make up?

Original recipe: each 250g pack makes up to 425g or 3 x 5 oz modeling compound cans.

Gluten Free recipe:  each 150g pack makes approximately 200g or 7 oz.

Can I use my good cooking pots / utensils?

You certainly can!  Everything soaks and rinses clean.

What type of oil do you add?

Any type of cooking oil is fine.

How do I store Doh Magic?

Reuse your resealable Doh Magic bag to store your dough. Doh Magic can be stored in a cupboard or in the fridge.  If the dough is kept clean, it will last multiple months in either the cupboard or the fridge.

How long will it last?

Original recipe:  Kept clean and free from contamination Doh Magic will last for over 6 months in an air tight bag at room temperature or in the fridge.

Gluten Free recipe: Kept clean and free from contamination Doh Magic will last for approximately 1 month in an air tight bag at room temperature. 

Should either dough harden or dry out: easily restore by making a well in the centre of the dough and placing a drop of oil and water.  Knead and repeat until desired texture and firmness.
