Playdough Fun

Last weekend, I made some homemade playdough. I have been on the search for some activities for Andrew to do when it is the "4 o'clock witching hour of fun." Apparently, he is old enough to play with playdough and I didn't realize this. I wasn't even sure if he would like it. And, I was not about to go buy some when I had all the ingredients right here.


1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tbsp veggie oil
1 tbsp cream of tarter
1 cup water

Boil it all together. Stir contantly until it become stiff. Place on wax paper (or shiny side of freezer paper) and let cool. Knead the dough until smooth. Knead in food coloring, if you would like. The dough will last in airtight container for a few months

Andrew is learning about the colors yellow, red, and blue this month. So, that is what our playdough colors are right now. He had a lot of fun with each of them. Plus, it made the last hour before Jason came home go by much faster!
