There have to be hundreds of playdoh recipes out there, and I'm sure that that is an understatement.
So I'm throwing this one out there, as well!
Make this with your littles today. This is a perfect way to start 'cooking' with your kids if you're a bit nervous about actually ingesting something the kids have had a hand in making. ha ha.
What you need
3 cups flour
1 1/2 cups salt
3 cups water
2 Tbs vegetable oil
1 Tbs cream of tarter
food coloring, however much you desire
Throw all ingredients into a large-ish sauce pan. Start stirring with a wooden spoon till you can't stir it anymore. It will start coming away from the sides. Cool till it can be handled.
It might even allow you time to get all that laundry folded that you left in your basket for the last few days. Not that I would know anything about that [cough, cough].
