This stuff is so easy to make!
Throw the following ingredients into a saucepan:
- 1 Cup flour
- 2 tsp cream of tartar
- 1/3 CUP salt
- 1 Cup water
- 1 tbsp oil
Stir over medium heat until it gets thicker. Then add whichever food coloring you want. Continue stirring until the play dough pulls away from the pan. Set on wax paper to cool.
The whole process takes less than ten minutes.
I have to say, it’s pretty fun to play with it while it’s still warm.
I originally made some two years ago in my overzealousness to make things for Nicky. It took a little longer before he was really interested, point being though, that play dough is still going strong. The only reason I made more was because he’s mixed together the colors and even some brand name play dough his aunt gave him. It’s U-G-L-Y.
