Perfect Playdough!

We love playdough in our family and I am constantly amazed at how long a batch will keep the kids entertained for!
It is so easy and cheap to make and is a great way to get creative on a Saturday afternoon.
On this day we had few colour options available so we used the one bottle of red food colouring we had and got to it.
The recipe we use is quick to prepare and you will have a big ball of warm playdough in your hands before you know it.
Here is the recipe we use for perfect playdough.
1 Tb Cooking Oil
1 Cup Flour
2 Tsp Cream of Tartar
1 Cup Water
1/2 cup Salt
2 Tsp Food Colouring
Mix ingredients together in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until dough is no longer sticky and gathers together in a large blob. Take pan off stove immediately. Turn out onto floured board and knead until smooth.
Have fun! :)
