This afternoon my daughter and I sat down to make some homemade play dough. The store bought stuff I had purchased many moons ago, was all dried up and had to be tossed. I saw a recipe online for homemade dough and I knew I had everything on hand, what I didn't realize is just how EASY and FAST it is to make this stuff! It has the same consistency of the real Playdough and makes a ton too!
What You Will Need:
1 Cup Salt
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
2 Cups Water
Food coloring -OR- Kool Aid Packet**
1 TB cooking oil (I used Safflower Oil because I had it on hand)
1 tsp Cream of Tartar
Put all ingredients into a medium sized pot. If you are using Kool Aid dissolve it into the water first.
Turn the stove onto med-high heat and stir the mixture continuously.
After literally about 2 min it's DONE!
Gather all the contents from the pot into a lump and dump onto the counter.
I let it sit for a couple minutes and then kneeded it all together...it was still pretty warm but not real hot.
