Homemade playdough is not only easy to make, it totally takes you back to elementary school! Share the nostalgia with your kids by letting them help you craft some homemade play dough.
2 cups flour
2 cups water
1 cup salt
4 tablespoons cream of tartar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1) Mix together the flour, water, salt, cream of tartar and oil in a saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. (You should do this part of the craft yourself, while your kid watches.) When the playdough begins to form a ball, it's cooked.
2) Cool for five minutes and then let your kid help you knead in food coloring.
Note: It's fun to add glitter and scents like vanilla or orange to playdough, but wait till they're old enough not to eat it!report abuse
