Don't Ever Buy Playdough Again!!


My daughter LOVES playdough, but the stuff I buy just isn't cutting it.  It breaks apart, dries out easily, etc, etc. and it feels like a waste of money.  Here's an awesome playdough recipe that I got from her preschool.  Hope you get to try's super easy!


2 cups flour
1 cup salt
4 tsp. cream of tartar
2 Tbsp. oil
2 cups water
*food coloring as needed (I heard paste food coloring produces the best vibrant colors, although I used liquid and it was fine)

*Mix together the dry ingredients.
*Add food coloring and oil to the water.
*Mix dry and wet ingredients together.
*In pan on medium heat, cook the playdough.  It will be gooey at first. 
*Keep stirring until it pulls together and becomes the right consistency: not sticky.
*Knead the playdough on the counter until cool.
*Store in airtight container!
