Play Dough


From: I got this one from a preschool teacher friend of mine.

Ingredients:

2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 teaspoon of food coloring or more
1 teaspoon of cream of tarter
2 tablespoons oil
2 cups of water

How to: 

Combine all the ingredients in a medium size pot.  Mix thoroughly.  Adjust the color if desired by adding more food coloring.  I found our wok to be perfect for this... but I use our wok for just about everything under the sun.  Cook on medium heat until the dough turns from liquid into a mushy mess and starts to form into a mass and the dough pulls away from the sides of whatever you're cooking it in. At this point, remove it from heat and place on a cutting board to knead until the dough becomes dry and un-sticky.  Now you're ready to play!  For storage, simply seal it in a couple of air-tight Ziplock bags at room temperature.
