Homemade Play Dough

What better way to spend a rainy day when you are little, than to spend it creatively playing with playdough?!  My children will sit for hours at the table making little cupcakes and cookies out of their playdough.  And being able to make the playdough, allows them to be involved as well.  This is a great recipe to engage your little one's in with you.  Let them get creative by chosing the koolaid packets to make all of their favorite colors.   

*Mix together:

-4 cups of flour
-2 cups of salt
-4 tsp. cream of tarter

... *Add:
-4 T. of oil (vegetable or canola)
-4 cups of water

Stir well, then cook over low-medium until lumpy and fairly dry.  Knead on table and store in a air tight container like tupperware or a large ziploc bag.  You can even add in food coloring, kool-aid packets or scented oils into the water before you add it in at the end :) Enjoy!
