Homemade Play Dough
1 cup flour
1 cup water
1/2 cup salt
1 Tbsp veggie oil
2 tsp Cream of Tartar
Add all ingredients into a 12-inch skillet.
Heat, on medium-high heat for 3 minutes, constantly stirring the mixture.
The mixture will go from a paste-like consistency to a very obvious play dough texture.
Flatten and stir repeatedly.
Divide and add food coloring, mixing by hands.
Keep refrigerated in plastic ziplock baggies.
Besides being ridiculously easy to make, it's totally non-toxic. Though, after one quick taste-test I can tell you Marcus has yet to go back for seconds.
Because Marcus isn't exactly the arts and crafts type I wasn't too worried about my minimal investment in this homemade entertainment device.
Thanks Aunt Carolyn for the new found fun!
