Playdough can be endless fun for kids of all ages!! This one is non toxic, SO easy the kids can help, and you can make several batches in less than 30 minutes. It will also last way longer than the store bought and is softer. Need we say more?!
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/3 cup table salt
1 cup water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Parchment paper (or you can use another cooled bowl or anything to line your counter)
4 quick NOTES: (1)You may want to halve this playdough recipe if you want to use different colors :) (2)Cream of tartar can be pricey in the spice section of the store, you can buy in bulk on amazon for a lot cheaper! (3) Gel food coloring works best but any is fine! (4) Recipe makes about 2 cups of playdough (store bought is usually ½ cup.)
Ok lets get to it!
First, add the dry ingredients to a large saucepan - 1 cup flour, 2 teaspoons of creak of tartar, ⅓ cup salt (yes - you read that right - ⅓ cup! This helps it from being too sticky AND keeps it good for a long time).
