Another Recipe--But Not to Eat

I started making play-dough at home years ago, and I truly think it is so much better than store-bought. It lasts forever if you keep it stored in plastic baggies, and it's not as stiff as the name brand. Cheap, easy, and fun--what more could you want in a toy? I made it again last week (quadrupling the recipe) to give to my kids and niece and nephews over the Thanksgiving weekend. They spent quite a bit of time creating with it. You can tell a lot about a child's personality by how long the colors stay un-mixed. :)


1 c. flour

1/2 c. salt

2 tsp. cream of tartar

1 T oil

1 c. boiling water

food coloring

Heat all but food coloring over medium-low heat, stirring 'til mixture forms a ball. Knead in food coloring.
