Play Dough

What mommy doesnt love playdough right?? A few cents and 10 minutes and hours of entertainment!!!

Classic PlayDough
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp oil
1 cup water
food coloring

Combine first all ingredient in a medium size pot

 mix mix mix until it is just slightly lumpy and your color is even.....add more coloring to suit your style.

Turn on the heat to medium and stir constantly until it comes together in a ball(about 4-5 minutes)

Turn it out of the pan and knead a few times and there you go!!!

Allow to cool before giving it to your kids of course!!

Alternately you can do a BIG batch by double or tripling the ingredients and omitting the food coloring, then divide as you wish and knead food coloring into each ball...
I prefer to put the food coloring in the mix to avoid hand and counter staining.

Store tightly sealed in plastic ziplock bags!
