The kids are happily playing with it right now. I like the fact that it can be stored for quite awhile, and doesn't dry out nearly as fast as the store bought kind, there is no fighting over colours, plus, I know exactly what is in my play dough - not some mystery substance from China.
Play Dough Recipe
Salt 1 1/2 cups
Water 3 cups
Vegetable Oil 2TB.
Cream of tartar 1TB.
Food coloring few drops or unsweetened "Kool-Aid" 1pkg.
Mix ALL of the ingredients in a large saucepan.
Cook over medium low heat, until the dough comes away
from the edges of the pan and it becomes difficult to move the spoon. Remove from heat. Cool until it can be handled.
Place on counter or wax paper knead 3-4 times.
Store in an air tight container.
