Homemade Play-Doh

The other day I was trying to think of something fun to entertain the kids and I started to have flashbacks of my own childhood.  One thing that came back was all that time in Kindergarden playing with that salty homemade playdough.  I googled it and found the recipe.  

Homemade Play-Doh-
1 cup flour
½ cup salt
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
Combine above ingredients in a large saucepan.

Gradually stir in:
1 cup water
2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon food coloring

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until a ball forms. Remove from heat and knead until smooth.  

It was super fast and easy and the kids actually got to help with most of it.  I let the kids play with it as soon as it cooled down enough to touch.
