Play Dough

I was a stand in babysitter for my 5 year old grandson for two weeks. One afternoon he was terrible bored so we decided to make play dough. We happened to have the ingredients on hand that we needed to make  it. The ingredients ares:                        

2 cups of flour

2 cups warm water

1 cup salt

2 Tablespoon vegetable oil

1Talbespoon cream of tartar

You can use food coloring or packages of kool aid to color the play dough. I used food coloring , but kool aid works best because it gives the dough a better smelling scent. The cream of tartar adds elasticity to the dough. You will want to keep this away from pets.

Mix all of the ingredients together, and stir over low heat. The dough will begin to thicken it will look like mashed potatoes. It will clump to the center, remove the pan from the heat and allow it to cool to handle. Knead the dough a little then divide it to four even pieces add the kool aid or coloring.  Here is the picture of it done. Happy crafting any questions just contact me.
