How-To: Make Your Own Play Dough
Looking for a fun, easy activity to entertain your kids? Why not make your own play dough? With a few simple ingredients and a pot, you can make a ball of dough to entertain your kids.
Here's what you need:
1 cup of all purpose flour
1/4 cup table salt
2 Tbsp Cream of Tartar
1 cup of water
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
Here's what you do:
In a medium saucepan, mix the flour, salt and cream of tartar.
Turn the stove to medium-high and add the water and vegetable oil to the mixture.
Stir constantly for about 5 minutes. . .the dough will start to form a ball in the pot.
Once the dough forms a ball, dump it onto a lightly floured surface - be careful it's HOT.
If you want to, you can divide the dough and color it with food coloring.
After playing, put the dough in an airtight container or plastic bag to store. This is a great activity to teach kids to safely use the stove too.
