Play Dough

We make playdough pretty regularly with our daycare kids. Its a great math lesson, then fun with 3-D art.  Here is the recipe that I use.

No Cook Play Dough Recipe
2 cups flour
3 tbsp cream of tartar
1/2 cup salt
4 tbsp oil
1/2 cup boiling water
food coloring

Mix dry ingredients together. Mix oil, food coloring and boiling water in a separate container. Stir liquid mixture until cool enough to knead. Knead until smooth. If play-dough is too dry, add more water, a little at a time. If play-dough is too crumbly, knead in a small amount of oil. Store in an airtight container.
