Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


2 c flour
1 c salt
1 c water
2 tsp cream of tartar
2 Tbsp oil
food coloring, paste works best
air tight storage containers

in a large sauce pan combine flour, salt, water, and cream of tartar.

turn heat to high. Continually stir and fold mixture, when it starts to form a ball, and becomes translucent and smooth, reduce heat to medium high. continue stirring until it forms a translucent ball. Remove from heat. Pour out onto counter. Knead until smooth. Cut into however many colors you want to use. Roll each into a ball and make an indent in top. Place a small amount of food coloring into indent, fold dough over itself and knead until color is incorporated fully. Repeat until all are done. Place each ball into airtight container.

When the dough starts to dry out simply wet hands and work water into dough until it is the desired consistency.

Not really for eating, but not harmful if you have a little one who loves to eat everything, also it's cheaper than regular play dough.
