second time's the charm...
homemade play dough success!

the best cooked play dough

1 c flour
1/2 c salt
2 T cream of tartar
1 c water
1 to 2 T oil
food coloring or kool-aid

combine flour, salt, and cream of tartar in a saucepan.  mix liquids and gradually stir them into dry ingredients.  when mixture is smooth, cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until a ball forms.  remove from heat and knead until smooth.  can add some essential oil (we added lavender) or sparkles.  sprinkle in a little at a time whilst kneading it until you reach the desired effect.

thoughts: it's tough to stir while you're cooking it!  
i think we overcooked it just slightly...
it is just a wee bit crumbly.

the kids loved helping make it, 
choosing colors for it,
and playing with it!
