DIY Play Dough

Using ingredients that you probably have in your pantry, try this easy recipe for homemade play dough with your kids today!

2 cups flour
½ cup salt
3 tsp. cream of tartar
1 ½ T vegetable oil
2 cups water
Liquid food coloring

1 Whisk flour, salt, and cream of tartar together in a pan. Add vegetable oil and water and stir together with a large spoon. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly and scraping bottom of pan, until dough is pulling away from the pan and can form a ball when pinched. This will take about 7 minutes. 

2 Allow dough to cool before handling. Scoop it onto a flat surface and knead until smooth.

3 Divide the dough as you wish and add food coloring. 

4 Knead dough on a cookie sheet or color-safe surface until color is evenly distributed throughout. Store in an airtight container.
