Last week at the Afterschool Art Program we had a ton of fun making and playing with homemade Play Dough. The recipe was super simple and didn’t need a stove. It was a little stinky, so I might suggest using kool-aid powder as your food colouring. Kept in an air tight container this dough will last a few weeks. Longer if kept in the fridge. Have Fun!
Easy Play Dough
- 1 C White Flour
- 1/2 C Salt
- 2 TBLS Cream of Tartar
- 1 TBLS Cooking Oil
- Food Color
- 1 Cup Hot Water
- Mix your water and food colour separately.
- Mix together dry ingredients and cooking oil until blended.
- Add water, mix well. You may need to add a bit more flour to get a good consistency. It is very sticky at first but as it cools becomes more workable.
