Homemade Playdoh

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Tonight I made some playdoh for the kids to play with. They have a lot of fun with this stuff and it is super easy and cheap to make. And you don't have to worry about what's in it. It usually lasts 2-4 weeks here, I just keep it in a ziploc when they aren't playing with it. Here is my favorite recipe:

1 c flour
1/2 c salt
2 tsp cream of tarter
1 c water
1 tbsp oil
5-10 drops of food coloring (optional)

Combine the first three ingredients in a small saucepan.
Mix the wet ingredient together and slowly stir into dry mixture. Once it is all mixed together, put pan on stove over medium heat. Stir constantly. It is done when it forms a ball. Then I place it on a piece of wax paper on the counter and let it cool a little and then knead it until it is really smooth.

Then give it to the kids and let the fun begin!
