During the winter months it can be a challenge to keep little toddlers occupied when it is hard to go outside because of the cold. So, the other day I thought it would be fun to try and make play dough. It was lots of fun and the children loved it! :)
You will need:
2 c. flour
2 tbsp. oil
1 tsp. cream of tarter
2 c. water
1 c. salt
In a saucepan stir together the salt, cream of tarter and flour.
Pour in the water and oil.
At first it will be very runny, but keep cooking over medium heat and it will thicken and form a ball.
Remove from pan. Careful, it will be hot. knead a few times to make sure it's mixed all the way.
Divide the dough and add different food colorings.
Get out some cookie cutters, etc and let the children have fun! :) Abigail loves playing with play dough!
Mess level: Medium :)
