Homemade Playdough Recipe

  • 1 c water
  • 1/2 c salt
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar (to preserve the dough longer)
  • food coloring of choice
  • 1 c flour (probably not whole wheat)

Mix everything in a pan on the stove on medium to medium-high heat and slowly stir in the flour to avoid little chunks of flour in the dough. As soon as all of your flour is mixed in, remove the pan from the heat and let it cool. Tada! Playdough!
