Play Dough Recipe
1 cup flour, 1/2 cup salt , 2 teaspoons cream of tartar. 1 tablespoon cooking oil, 1 cup water, food coloring (spring colors)
Mix the flour, salt, and cream of tartar together. Mix the cooking oil and food color in the water and add to the dry ingredients. Stir and pour mixture in an electric skillet or nonstick pan. Stir
constantly until dough pulls away from the sides of skillet or pan. This process takes about 3 minutes. Empty dough onto waxed paper. Knead until smooth and cool. Store in a zip-lock bag.
