Play Dough

(Porter and Christian making dinosaur prints in playdough at preschool, Oct. 2009)

My Favorite Playdough Recipe

2 c. water
1 c. salt
4 t. cream of tartar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 c. flour

Add to a saucepan the water, salt and cream of tartar. Heat until it comes to a boil and the salt disolves as much as it will (about 1 minute). Add vegetable oil and flour. Stir until it forms a ball and then turn out onto the counter. Knead together after it cools some and add flour if it's too sticky or water if it's too dry. You may add food coloring to the water at the beginning, or knead into individual portions of clay after it's made. Store in an airtight container.
