(It is recommended that children be two years old or older to play with this dough and of course they should be supervised at all times.)
What You'll Need:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 cup water
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
How I Did It:
Dump the flour, salt, and cream of tartar into a pot and mix well.
Now add the oil and then begin stirring in the water a little at a time.
Cook over medium heat and continue to stir.
The dough will begin to thicken and form a ball.
Keep cooking until the dough doesn't seem sticky then dump it out onto some wax paper to cool a bit.
Divide the dough into four lumps (or however many colors you'd like to make) and knead some drops of food coloring into each. I used about four drops per ball but you can add more or less to get the colors you like.
I taped newspaper over the table and set him loose. The color never came off on anything and it didn't really have a smell. Keep the dough in an air tight container or plastic bag. I'll let you know how long ours lasts.
This was a lot of fun to make. Maybe I'll make more for the kids for Christmas and include some cookie cutters and things to go with.
