Homemade Play Dough

Today was play dough day! Here are some pictures of the fun that they had playing with it. They played for HOURS together on our back porch.

Homemade Play Dough
1 cup flour
1/4 cup salt
2 T cream of tartar
1 cup water
1 T vegetable oil
2 t food coloring

Mix flour, salt and cream of tartar in a medium pot. Add water, food coloring and oil. Stir over medium heat for 3-5 minutes. Don't worry if the mixture looks like a globby mess; it'll turn into dough! When the mixture forms a ball in the center of the pot, turn off the stove and let it cool. Then take it out of the pot and put it on a floured surface and kneed. When done, put it in a plastic bag or airtight container and store it in the fridge.
We LOVE this stuff!! It doesn't stink like the other stuff does and it lasts for forever. When it gets sticky, just add more flour to it! ENJOY!
