Homemade playdough

Every child loves playdough. Here is a simple receipe to make your own: 2 cups All purpose flour, 4 tbl. cream of tartar, 2 tbl. cooking oil, 1 cup of salt, 2 cups boiling water & food coloring.   Eeva-Liisa, Ian & Austin had a great time measuring out all the ingredients & mixing different food coloring to make their own unique playdough color. The dough was warm from the boiling water as we placed it on our floured counter, some stuck to their hands but they didn't seem to mind. Like all really fun projects it was a little messy but it was a wonderful way for the children to keep their hands busy:)Added bonus ....this dough doesn't have that weird playdough smell!
