stove-top play dough

Submitted by:
Super easy and can be stored in the fridge for months!

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 3 - 5minutes

Serves: all kiddos


1 cup white flour
1/4 cup salt
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
1 cup water
1 teaspoon food colouring
1 tablespoon vegetable oil


Mix flour, salt, and cream of tartar in a medium size pot. Add water, food colouring, and oil. Cook and stir over medium heat for 3 - 5 minutes. Mixture will look like a globby mess, and you'll be sure it is not turning out, but it will. When it forms a ball in the middle of the pot, turn out and knead on a slightly floured surface. Store in an air tight container or plastic bag.
