My Favorite Recipe:
4 cups flour
1 cup salt
4 cups water
4 tablespoons oil
1/2 cup cream of tartar
food coloring for color
essential oils for scent
(*I'm using yellow and lemon oil for some extra germ-killing protection.)
1. Mix all ingredients in a pot
2. Cook and stir over low/medium heat until the play dough is formed and no longer sticky (careful not to burn the bottom).
3. Turn out on a floured surface and allow to cool.
4. Add more flour and knead if necessary.
5. Store in an airtight container (I like to use a large tupper ware container).
You can even make more colors, too! This will help keep your kids busy for many, many days. I much prefer this homemade recipe to store bought kinds. It is a lot nicer to play with. Plus, have your kids help you with measuring for a little math, too!
Here are some good play dough tools:
