Homemade Playdough

My daughter was at a friends house last week and every day since then she's been talking over and over again about playdough. She is beyond obsessed with pink, so naturally, we made pink playdough. It was to fast and so easy. I had to to keep this recipe somewhere where I can easily find it again. It took 10 minutes, and she's already played with it for a total of 2 hours today. Lovely. 

Homemade Playdough
1 cup flour
1/3 cup salt
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 cup water
1 Tbsp. vegetable or canola oil
Food coloring

In a saucepan, mix the flour, salt and cream of tartar. Turn on to medium-high heat and add the water, oil and food coloring. Constantly stir, and let it cook for about 3 minutes. You will see it slowly harden and not be as liquidy. Once it starts looking more like playdough, and pulls away from the pan then turn off the heat and remove from the pan. Let it cool. Knead the playdough until smooth. Play with instantly, like we did, or keep it in an airtight container.
