I have tried several play-doh's and this is by far my favorite
You Will Need:
1 Cup flour
1 cup water
1/4 cup salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 Tbsp baby oil
Heat all ingredients over stove top on medium high. Stir until it clumps together and you get the desired consistency. Knead in food coloring.
I threw all the ingredients into a pot, mixed them together and turned on the heat.
Once the stove reached medium high heat it took about 3 minutes for the mixture to clump up
The first few times you use it, you will end up with grease marks on everything it touches (they wipe right off). But eventually that stops happening and it's still just as soft.
The kids will keep it out for very long periods of time and after 3 months it's still just as soft as when I first made it.
It even works great with play-doh accessories.
