A recipe for homemade playdough:
1 cup water
1 Tbs vegetable oil
1/2 cup salt
1 Tbs cream of tarter
1 cup flour
heat water, oil, salt, cream of tarter, and food coloring in a saucepan on the stove. The directions said to "heat until warm" but I cooked it a bit to dissolve some of the salt. Not sure if that made a difference, but ours turned out fine. Remove from the heat and add the flour. Stir than knead until smooth. Cool slightly until safe to handle and play! Let children play with warm and cool playdough for different sensory experiences. If you keep it in an airtight container, it is supposed to last for months.
Here are some photos of Lily playing with hers.
