Homemade Playdoh

So this morning JH and I were wanting to make something fun. I love to bake, which means I love to eat. This is not a good combo when you are trying to loose weight. So we decided to make some homemade playdoh. It was superfun and JH LOVED the whole process. His imagination has taken off lately so he loves to play "cook" with playdoh. So it was home run this morning.

I thought I would share with you how we made the playdoh... (PS... it is VERY VERY Salty so i would not worry about your kiddos eating it)
Cooked Playdough

3 cups flour

1 ½ cups salt

6 tsp. cream of tartar

3 cups cool water

3 Tbsp oil

Food coloring
Mix dry ingredients in a big pot. Blend liquids together in a bowl. Combine with dry ingredients and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat when dough pulls away from the sides of the pot and can be pinched without sticking (about 5 min.) Turn onto board or counter and knead until smooth play dough consistency. Store in an airtight container.
This playdough will be useable for several months.
