I love to make play dough with the kids.

Not sure why, but sometimes they even shed their clothes in the process.

Clothes, or no clothes, it’s great fun, and keeps the children busy for a long time…

Here’s the recipe…

1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 teaspoon cream of tarter
1 cup boiling water
1 tablespoon oil
Food coloring

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Boil water and add food coloring. Add oil. Mix.

And have fun!

A few tricks of the trade…

I measure a cup of water in a glass measuring cup and bring it to a boil in the microwave. That way it’s already measured and ready. I then mix the food coloring in with the water before I add the oil. It seems to mix better that way.

And if you want really bright colors, you really have to use Wilson cake decorators food coloring.

Enjoy!
