Teacher Amy shared her recipe for Play Doh with us. You too can make play doh at home!

Play Doh

4 C all-purpose flour
2 C salt
4 C water
4 teaspoon cream of tartar
4 tablespoon vegetable oil
a few drops of food coloring

Mix together all ingredients in a large saucepan. Heat on medium for 3-5 minutes (until it starts to pull away from the sides and clumps together in the center). Place on waxed paper to cool. Once cool kneed and store in a large zip-lock plastic bag.

Note: This recipe makes a batch of play doh for an entire class.  If you want to make a smaller batch for home, cut it in half or quarters.
