Homemade playdough


1 C flour
1/4 C salt
2 Tb cream of tartar
2 ts food coloring (optional)
1 Tb vegetable oil
1 C water


  1. Mix the flour, salt, and cream of tartar in a medium pot. Add water, food coloring, and oil.
  2. Stir over medium heat for 3-5 minutes. The mixture will gradually combine and solidify to form dough.
  3. When the mixture forms a ball in the center of the pot, remove from heat and let cool. Once cooled enough to handle, remove it to a floured surface and knead for 30 seconds, or until the proper consistency.


Store, refrigerated, in an airtight container.
