Play Dough

Growing up I never liked the play dough you could buy in stores. Oh no, I was spoiled by Mom's homemade stuff and that was all that would do. Making it is half the fun. It's something I'm passing on to Heidi, and she made her first batch tonight.

Mix together:
1cup flour
1TBSP alum -or - 2tsp. cream of tarter
1/2 cup salt
1TBSP oil
1 cup water

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture clumps together and reaches the consistency of mashed potatoes. (It took about 6 minutes on my stove). Remove from heat.

If desired, add 2tsp. vanilla to make it smell yummy, and food coloring. Mix with hands, this is the fun part! Ours is orange of course!

We made a double batch to have enough for friends.
Store in an air tight container it lasts for quite awhile, we had the last batch for over a year.
