Homemade Playdough for Valentine's Day

Homemade Playdough for Valentine's Day

This is a simple and inexpensive way to celebrate Valentine's Day with the children (and grown ups) in your life. This is our own favorite recipe that we have used for over 20 years and is truly the best we have used. We hope you enjoy it. 

Supplies Needed:

2 Cups All Purpose Flour

4 Tablespoons Cream of Tartar (can get at grocery store)

2 Tablespoons Cooking Oil

1 Cup Salt

Few Drops of Red or Pink Food Coloring

2 Cups Boiling Water

Put all ingredients into large bowl except for boiling water.  Pour boiling water over the mixture and stir it up with a large spoon.  Sprinkle your surface with flour and lift warm dough out of your bowl and knead until texture is right.  Play dough can be stored in an air tight container.
