Here's my favorite homemade playdoh recipe. Turn this sloppy looking mess into a fun ball of playdoh. My daughter's preschool class has a parent volunteer to bring in a batch at the beginning of each month. It would be nice to get in the habit of making this once a month at home and tossing out all the old dried up crumbly mess that the store bought playdoh always becomes.
Serving Size: A BIG blob (about the size of 2 large grapefruits)
4 cups flour
4 cups water
1 cup salt
8 tsp cream of tartar (found in baking aisle)
4 tbls vegetable oil
Combine all ingredients in large pot and cook over medium hit stirring constantly until dough forms. It starts out really soupy so don't be scared. Keep stirring and in about 10-15 minutes it will be a playdoh consistency. Take it off of the heat and dump it on a silpat or waxed paper. Let it cool and then knead it until it is soft.
