(3) The Recipe

Homemade Playdough

In a medium saucepan, combine:

1/2 cup salt
1 cup flour
1 Tbsp. cream of tartar
1 Tbsp. oil
1 cup water
food coloring
1 tsp. vanilla extract (optional)

Stir well. Heat gently, stirring all the time. When the dough has reached a good consistency, remove from heat and let cool. (Usually takes 2-3 minutes of cooking on low.) When the dough has cooled, knead until smooth. You can add more flour if your dough is too sticky. Store in a ziplock bag.

My mom used to make this for me when I was about Samuel's age. Very fun. Now I have the recipe for Sir Calvin. Thanks!
