This is another fabulous recipe I found in our "Mother's Legacy" cookbook that our MOPS group is selling as a fundraiser. It would make a great Christmas gift! I usually avoid play dough, but this stuff I have no problem using. I like the consistency better than the store bought stuff. It holds together well and doesn't seem to dry out as quickly.
It also is easier for the kids to roll out. Give my kids some of this dough to play with and some cookie cutters and they are entertaining themselves for a long time!
Homemade Play Dough Recipe:
1/2 cup cheap white flour
1/4 cup cheap salt
1 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 tsp cheap vegetable oil
In a medium sized saucepan, stir together first three ingredients. Then add water, oil and food coloring, stirring as you go until smooth. Cook over medium heat, stirring until ball forms. Won't take long. Cool. Let the kids knead it until smooth and then store into an airtight container or plastic bag. It was last a very long time if you keep the air out when storing.
So whip up a batch and be your kids' hero! This would make great stocking stuffers or be fun to put in Easter baskets, too.
