Step 2. Next add boiling water and mix well. If at this stage the dough is still really sticky and not forming a ball, add some more flour and mix with your hand. 


 Step 3. When the dough has cooled knead it for a good 2-5 minutes until no longer sticky. If the dough is still sticky you will need more flour and if it is too dry add some water. Playdough consistency can vary depending on location and brand of flour.
