I have been really busy but with this snowy weather I decided to take the time to make play dough with my girls. The great part about making it at home is that the play dough is non toxic and completely edible (although I am not vouching for the taste!). Not only did they have fun playing with it they enjoyed making it too! Unlike many recipes that require cream of tartar, you probably have all of the ingredients in your pantry.
Here is what you need for each color you want to make:
2 Cups flour
11/2 cups salt
2 tbsp oil
1 cup water
Mix dry ingredients until well incorporated.
In a separate bowl mix food coloring, water and oil until well mixed.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients until it’s the consistency of paste.
At this point add flour until it is a dough texture and no longer sticks to your fingers and hands. Enjoy!
