Playing The Dough…YO!

My boys LOVE playdough, it is second only to Legos at our house. I like to make a batch of this play-dough at least once a month or so, sometimes changing the colors to suit the season. It is the perfect rainy or snowy day activity šŸ™‚

Here’s how you make it:

3 cups White Flour
1 1/2 cups Regular White Salt
3 cups Water
2 TBSP. Vegetable Oil
1 TBSP. Cream of tartar
Food coloring

Mix ALL of the ingredients up REALLY WELL in a large saucepan.
Cook over medium low heat, until the dough comes away from the edges of the pan and it is no longer easily stirred. Remove from heat. Cool until it can be handled.
Place on counter or wax paper and knead 3-4 times, poke holes into the dough and add drops of food coloring and knead color in until it reaches your desired hue.
Store in an air tight container.

when the dough pulls away from the sides as "one lump"...you know it is finished


after kneading the finished dough, divide the dough into equal portions...


poke holes in the dough and add 2-3 drops of food coloring per hole, then knead the color into the dough


the finished product
