This homemade playdough is so easy and quick to make! Plus there is something about kneading warm, freshly made playdough that is almost theraputic. If you've had a bad day, check and see if your kids need new playdough. Younger kids can help with the initial combining of ingredients in the pot, and older kids can help stir over the stove and knead the playdough. (be careful, its hot right when it come out!) Of course everyone can play with it once its done!
1 cup white flour
1/4 cup salt
2 Tbsp cream of tartar
1 cup water
1 Tbsp oil
food coloring (unless making white)
Mix together the dry ingredients in a medium pot. Add in the wet ingredients. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the playdough forms a ball in the middle of the pot, about 3-5 minutes. Take out of the pot and knead on a lightly floured surface. Store in an airtight container or bag.
