Homemade Play Dough


Because I truly believe you can never be too old to play with it...we made some today and Zoey created with it (and I have to admit that I did too) for quite a while this afternoon in-between taking bike rides and playing with Leo. Here is the recipe that I used today...

Homemade Play Dough

1 cup flour
4 tbsp. salt
2 tbsp. cream of tarter
5 tsp. cooking oil
1 cup water
food coloring of choice

(I doubled my batch and got two nice sized balls of dough and added my food coloring AFTER it was done cooking.)

Heat all ingredients over medium heat. Stir constantly until the dough clings to the spoon and forms a ball which completely cleans the pan. Knead when cool. Can be enjoyed immediately. Will store in the refrigerator for months in a plastic covered container. Note: When cooking I thought I botched my batch and almost quit and made a new batch, DON'T quit! It's supposed look runny and clumpy for a bit before it all solidifies...keep stirring over the medium heat until it's all formed.
