Today, we made play dough! It's a good summer activity that is easily done. Here's the recipe we used:
Homemade Play Dough
4 cups cheap white flour
4 cups water
2 cups cheap salt
1/2 cup cheap canola oil
8 tsp. cream of tarter
food coloring and essential oils as desired
Mix everything together in a large saucepan and stir with a wooden spoon, over medium heat, until the dough forms. This only takes a few minutes. When the dough forms, plop is out onto a counter and knead a few times until smooth.
If you want different colors, wait to add the food coloring until now. Separate the dough into as many different colors as you want and add different food coloring to each. Knead it in and add drops until the color you want develops.
