Homemade Playdough

Super easy and fun Play dough recipe! It took about 30-40 minutes to make 4 colors, it's way better than the store bought play dough! Plus it's practically free! Everything you need you probably have in your cupboards or pantry!
All you need is:
1/2 cup salt
1 tbsp. vegetable or canola oil
1 tbsp. cream of tartar (yes, this is a spice)
1 cup water
a few drops of food coloring
1 cup of flour
Mix everything EXCEPT the flour in a saucepan, warm, you don't need to boil it, just make sure it gets somewhat mixed and warm. Then pull it off the burner and add the flour! Stir with a spoon, it might seem soupy at first but stir for another minute or so and it'll thicken up. Then drop it on the counter and knead for a few minutes, then put it in a Ziploc bag or storage container and that's it, your done, super easy and fast! Brycen thought it was so fun, plus he loved dropping the food coloring in!
