The other day as I was cooking I noticed some flour that has been in the cupboard for some time. I am not sure how long flour keeps, but I know this has been in there probably 6 months or so. So instead of throwing it away I made mention to Gillian maybe we would make some play dough with it.
Well, needless to say she has been bugging me several times daily. So I looked up online on how to make it an easy way and have it turn out good.
Found one that looked easy enough, however it called for cream of tarter. Now, I know I do not have that in the house. So instead of listen to Gillian fuss about play dough I went and picked some up at the store.
Easy Play Dough Recipe:
3 cups of All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 cups Sea Salt
2 tbsp. Cream of Tarter
3 tbsp Veggie Oil
3 cups water
a few drops Essential Oils. I used peppermint
Mix all of the ingredients together on the stove. Cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes stirring constantly. Once the dough starts to form a ball and gets harder to stir, remove from heat and divide the dough. The amount you divide depends on how many colors you want and of how much.
Once you have the dough divided up color it up how you want. Make sure to mix the color in well. We used food coloring. However, you can used drink mixes if you want.
