Playdough is one of our favorite things. It is quick and easy to make, and the kids spend hours molding, cutting, and generally making a mess!
Now, not only is this time great for mom to get some things done, it helps the kids learn and grow as well!
This is the best recipe for playdough. Now, I might be biased, since this is what I grew up playing with, but I've tried other recipes too. This one's the best!
1 cup Flour
1/2 cup Salt (yes, really)
1 teas. Cream of tartar
Mix these ingredients together in a medium sized pan.
In a measuring cup mix together:
1 cup water
1 TB Oil
Food Coloring (dye or Kool-aid!)
Mix wet ingredients in with the dry, and mix thoroughly.
Heat the mixture on medium, stirring until it becomes a dough.
Knead until smooth.
