Home-made Playdough!

Whip this up in 5 minutes and keep them happy for a whole hour!

1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup salt
1/2 cup water
1/2 tablespoon oil
1/2 tsp cream of tartar

a drop of food coloring

Mix all but the last ingredient in a small saucepan. Cook over a very low heat until it turns into a dough – don’t leave it, it’ll will stick to the bottom of the pan! Knead the dough until cool enough for kids to touch. Add a few drops of coloring and knead until evenly mixed.

I have the kids ‘work’ on a plastic place mat at the table.  Just add some toothpicks, little toys, dull knife and let the creativity happen!
