WFMW: playdough recipe

Working at a preschool and now a school with elementary kids playdough is a constant staple of the classroom. However, the reall stuff (you know, the stuff that smells so good the first time you open the can) is expensive.

This is a fabulous recipe that keeps for a long time and it's so easy to make!

• 1 cup flour
• 1 tablespoon of oil
• ½ cup salt
• 2 teaspoons cream of tarter
• 1 cup water
• food coloring

In a pan mix together all of the ingrediants. Stir constantly over medium heat until playdough starts to solidify and forms a ball. Remove from heat, mix together thoroughly and place in an airtight container.

For a fun twist, after it is done cooking, add a few drops of vanilla, lemon, peppermint, or almond extract. You can also mix in some cinnamon and punmpkin pie spice to make it smell yummy. Another favorite of kids is adding glitter. Enjoy!
