fun when no sun

This afternoon we made playdough. Not too creative, but what else is there to do when it's FREAKING cold outside?!!??

Cooper wanted red for Valentines day... but of course it turned out a little on the pink side...

and Sean wanted green because Cooper loves green and always has to up his brother.

1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 tbsp. oil
3 tbsp. Cream of Tartar
1 cup water
food coloring

Stir together in saucepan and warm over medium heat. When you cant stir anymore and it forms a ball, turn out of pan and knead warm dough to get chunks out. It's ready!!! This whole process takes less than 10 minutes. I did 2 batches in 15 minutes, and it's so much better than the stuff you buy in the store!

I've been meaning to make playdough but haven't gotten around to it ever...maybe some day! Looks like you had lots of fun!

Instead of food coloring add a package of kool-aid to the wet ingredients. It gives great color without using a whole container of die and makes it smell yummy, well as yummy as homemade play dough can smell.
