Easy Play Dough
Here's a recipe for making playdough if you don't have any. You'll need:
|4 cups flour|
|1 cup salt|
|4 cups water|
|4 tablespoons oil|
|1/2 cup cream of tartar|
The secret is good fine salt. If you can, find the finest salt possible as it makes smoother dough.
You can add the food colouring to make the dough any colour you like. If you put the colour in last, you can divide up the dough and make lots of colours from one batch. It is better to add the colour at the beginning though, as it is easier to mix and you get a more even colour.
You can just mix all the ingredients in a bowl but if you can it is better to heat the mixture in a saucepan.Cook and stir over low/medium heat until the dough is completely formed and no longer sticky. Allow to cool slightly before storing in an air tight container or zip lock bag.
