2 cups flour
3 tbsp cream of tartar
1/2 cup salt
4 tbsp oil
1/2 cup boiling water
- Mix dry ingredients together.
- Mix oil, food coloring and boiling water in a separate container. Stir liquid mixture until cool enough to knead.
- Knead until smooth. If play-dough is too dry, add more water, a little at a time. If play-dough is too crumbly, knead in a small amount of oil.
- Store in an airtight container.
Thanks to Aunt Lori and countless blogs for helping me master the perfect play dough.
Part of the fun of the “experiment” is the food coloring step. What are some of the interesting colors you and your kids have made?
