Here is the best play dough recipe I've ever made.
2 cups flour
1/2 cup salt
1 tsp Cream of Tartar
2 Tbls oil
2 cups of water
you can either add a packet of Kool Aid, or food coloring if you wanted to add some color.
Mix it all in a sauce pan and stir on medium/high heat.
Stir and stir until it begins to form a ball. Dump the dough onto the counter and allow to cool. When it cools, knead it for a few minutes and your done!
So easy and super soft. If you keep it in a zip lock baggie or air tight container, it will last weeks.
