Home Made Play Dough
I ran across this recipe for play dough on the internet not long ago. I am sorry to say I did not take note of where I found it, so I am not taking credit for this, but it is the very best recipe for play dough that I have ever tried. It is also very easy and quick to make!
Mix together in a medium saucepan:
1 cup flour
6 Tablespoons salt
1 Tablespoon cream of tartar
1 cup water
1 Tablespoon oil
1- 2 teaspoons food coloring (to achieve the desired color)
Cook over medium heat until a ball forms, about 3 - 5 minutes. Do not under-cook, you want to make sure that most or all of the moisture is gone.
Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for several minutes until smooth and elastic, like Playdoh! Form into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap to let cool. Store in an air-tight container.
