Playdough

Materials Needed

  • 2 C. flour
  • 1/2 C. Salt
  • 1 TBS. Cream of Tartar
  • 2 C. Water
  • 2 TBS. Vegetable Oil
  • Food Color (optional)

Mix all ingredients together in heavy saucepan 'til all lumps are gone. Heat mixture over medium-high burner stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Mixture will begin to thicken and form big clumps. Stir like crazy! When mixture is as clumped as you can get it and it resembles "wet" scrambled eggs, it is done. Dump warm mixture out onto clean surface (Formica is good). Allow to cool a bit while you clean the pot and spoon. Then begin to knead the playdough. DO NOT ADD FLOUR! Have faith; the playdough will become less sticky as it cools while you knead it. Thoroughly cool before storing in air tight container.
