Homemade Play Dough from the Pantry

Homemade play dough is so easy.  And after the volcano it was time to make some more.  Here's how.

1 c. flour
1/2 c. salt
2 t. cream of tartar
1 c. water
2 T. oil
food coloring

Put all the ingredients in a pot.


Mix.


Cook on medium heat (nothing hotter) while stirring.


After a few minutes it will start to get lumpy.


Keep cooking until it forms a ball.


Knead it a bit on an orange table.  Well, the orange table is optional.  It will be a bit too warm for a toddler to handle but I was able to straight out of the pan.  It cools fairly quickly.  Pull out your cookie cutters and expect an hour's worth of entertainment.  Well, you should at least be able to check your email in peace, maybe go to the bathroom if you're lucky.
