Our Favorite Playdough Recipe

Around our house we go through A LOT of playdough. Ridiculous amounts of it. I have tried several recipes but my favorite by far has to be this one. To try something different you can knead some glitter into the finished dough or try adding a drop or two of scented extract for fun.

HOMEMADE PLAYDOUGH

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup salt
1 cup water
1 tbsp. cream of tarter
1/2 tbsp. cooking oil
Food coloring

Mix flour, salt and cream of tarter together in a medium saucepan. Once combined heat the mixture while stirring constantly until a thick ball forms. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Once dough has cooled add cooking oil and food coloring and knead by hand. Add as much food coloring as it takes to achieve desired shade. I usually use 3-4 tablespoons. Store dough in an air tight container. ENJOY!!
