Homemade Playdough

Our summer fun today was Make Homemade Playdough.  The only type of playdough I've ever made was pumpkin spice playdough in the fall that smelled delicious!  The playdough recipe I tried this time was so easy and took less than five minutes per color once I got the hang of it.  I made six colors and then W made a few more by mixing them together...which seems to be what he loves to do.
To make this you will need:

1 Cup flour
1/3 Cup Salt
1 Cup water
1 T. oil
1 t. cream of tartar
Food coloring

Put the flour, salt, and cream of tartar into a saucepan.  Add the water and oil and food coloring and mix all together on medium heat.  It will have lumps and they can be kneaded out later.  When it starts to stick all together then it is done.  Put it on wax paper to cool and then you can play, play, play!!

So simple, so fun, and hours of entertainment!
