Playdough Recipe

Sometimes we have the store bought stuff around the house, but sometimes we don't. This is a tried and true recipe I've been using for years. Back when I taught preschool I made a new batch about once a month.

3 Cups Flour
1 1/2 Cups Salt
3 Cups Water
2 Tbs Vegetable oil
1 Tbs Cream of Tartar

Mix ALL of the ingredients in a large saucepan and cook over a medium low heat, until the dough comes away from the edges of the pan. Remove from heat and cool until it can be handled.

Knead a few times with any food coloring, glitter, baking extract (for smell), sand (for texture) or whatever else you can think to add.

Store it in a sealed bowl.
