Homemade Playdough Recipe:
Step 1: Combine flour, cream of tartar, salt and oil in a large bowl.
Step 2: Boil 2 cups of water.
Step 3: Put food coloring into boiled water.
Step 4: Slowly add boiled water to the dry mixture until it forms together and is sticky. You will probably not need the two full two cups.
Step 5: Add more food coloring (if needed) and a few drops of glycerine (optional for shine).
Step 6: Knead the mixture for a few minutes until most of the stickiness is gone. When the dough resembles play-doh you are done!
Step 7: Store dough for up to six months in an airtight bag or container.
