Here’s what you’ll need & how to make the dough:
(don’t worry…a parent was helping & supervising the whole event…one one was hurt at the stove!)
Sift together & put in a saucepan:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 TB cream of tartar
Add to saucepan:
1-2 TB vegetable oil
1 cup of water (add food coloring to water…just a few drops will do)
A Few Drops of Vanilla Extract – or other flavored extracts
Whisk together until smooth and thick (low-medium heat). The mixture will be a little sticky until it cools. Place the “blob” of dough on wax paper to cool (about 30 minutes). Keep in an airtight container (deli containers work well). The play dough should keep for several weeks if kept in air tight container – ours usually lasts for months!
I usually send my kids out to the deck to play freely with their play dough in the lovely summer sun!
