Playing with Playdough

Moms, it is so easy to make playdough!  The recipe below took no more that 15 minutes to make and now we have HOURS of playdough fun!  (FYI - double the recipe if you have enough ingredients.)
My son enjoys "cutting" the playdough with his plastic knife.  I took out random length straws and he stuck them in all over.  This particular creation is a cake with candles that need to be blown out and it includes a straw to drink juice.  It looks like our dog is taking a sip. 

1 cup flour
1 cup water
1Tbsp. Oil
½ cup salt
1 tsp. Cream of Tartar
Food coloring, colors for cake icing and scents added as desired.
Add the colors and scents to the water.

Mix all ingredients together in a sauce pan.  Cook over medium heat until mixture
pulls away from sides of the pan and becomes play dough consistency.

Kneed until cool.  Store in an air-tight container.
*thank you Luciana for this easy recipe!*
