Yesterday Pazely asked me to make playdough. And so I gladly came to her rescue. (Thanks to the cream of tartar that happened to be in the ole cupboard---waaaay in the back of the cupboard.)
I forgot how easy it was to make playdough. It seriously took about 5 minutes.
Dump in all these ingredients over medium heat:
1 CUP warm water
1 CUP flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/4 CUP salt
1 teaspoon oil
Stir, stir, stir...& very quickly the soupy mess turns to the lovely consistency known as "playdough".
(The girls & I separated the dough into 3 small balls & then added our colors---smooshing with our hands until it was all kneaded into the dough.)
Here's a link to a recipe I used. There are 8 different playdough recipes listed. The one we tried was the "Traditional Playdough". Zoey is eager to make the edible Peanut Butter Playdough.
