Make the Magic

Having the recipe for fun can be found in making your own playdough. The great thing about playdough is that there are so many variations you can use depending on what you want to do. Below is a basic recipe that I have used with my preschoolers. 

1/2 cup salt
1 cup plain flour
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
1 cup water
1 tablespoon oil
food coloring

1. Mix all ingredients in medium sized sauce pan.
2. Stir over low heat until dough is pliable. 
3. Allow to cool and store in a well sealed plastic bag or container. 

*This dough makes enough for 2-4 children. You can refrigerate the playdough after use to last up to 6 months.
