Here's a list of what you will need:
1 cup flour 1/2 cup salt
2 tbsp cream tartar 2 tbsp veg oil
1 cup water food coloring
1 tsp flavor is optional (I don't use it since I don't want her to be tempted to eat it)
Flour, salt and cream of tartar in the pan with water and
vegetable oil in the measuring cup
Mix it together over medium/low heat and add drops
of food coloring
Stir slowly and adjust color if necessary
After a few minutes, it will start to pull away from the bottom of the pan
and start to form a ball
Turn it out onto a floured surface
After kneading the soft warm dough for a few minutes
You will end up with this:
A perfect, silky soft ball of playdough
Just keep it in an air-tight container or zip lock bag when not in use. Should last for several months when properly stored.
And for even more fun,
check out your local second-hand shop for cookie cutters, rollers
and pastry cutters which is where we found all of these.
Hours and hours of fun while recycling too!
