a good playdough

I've made this playdough many times over the years and it is the best recipe. If you keep it in a bag or sealed container it stays soft for a long time. Before we moved here I was able to find a place that sold bulk cream of tartar so it wasn't hugely expensive and I could make lots of playdough. I've not found a place here that sells it bulk, but I'm still looking.

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • food coloring

Mix all ingredients, adding food coloring last. Stir over medium heat until smooth. Remove from pan and knead until blended smooth. Place in plastic bag or airtight container when cooled.
