Playdough

This is the best recipe for homemade playdough! This is just one of the many ways we combat the cold Michigan winters. My boys think making this is so cool and they love to pick out the colors they want. I love how soft and squishy this is. I put a little peppermint extract in it so it smells yummy too!

Playdough

2 cups flour
3 T cream of tarter
1/2 cup salt
2 cups water
2 T oil
1 T mint extract (optional)
food coloring

Mix all the ingredients together in a large pan. Stir constantly over medium-low heat until the moisture forms a ball. This usually takes about 5 minutes. Knead while it is still hot (this is where I add the different colors). Let it cool completely before storing a an airtight container or Ziploc bag. This DOES NOT need to be refrigerated!
