Home Made Playdough!

Playdough has long since been a pastime for children. They have creative minds and spirits. Imagination play is so important for development and playdough is one resource that helps. So, I thought I’d pass along my recipe for playdough for anyone that doesn’t have one on hand.

2 cups flour

2 cups water

1 cup salt

2 tablespoons oil

4 teaspoons cream of tartar

food coloring

cook and stir over medium heat until dough forms. remove from pan and knead. wrap tightly in saran wrap or put in air tight container.

Have Fun!
