Play Dough Recipe

Yields1 Serving

 2 cups all purpose flour (given the nutritional value, you’re not wasting anything! ;))
 1 cup salt (like Dollar Tree salt)
 3 tbsp cream of tartar (if you buy in bulk, it’s WAY cheaper!)
 2 cups water
 2 tbsp oil (again, Dollar Tree)
1

Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until the dough begins to pull away.

2

Remove from heat, dump on your workspace, and knead.

3

It will be hot at first, but will cool quickly.

At this point, you can color it. We’ve used unsweetened Kool Aid packets in the past, they give it color and scent. Today, we added a few drops of food coloring and almond extract. So, whatever you’ve got, try it out! 😉
