Homemade PlayDough!

Here at Seasons, we use a LOT of Playdough and it can be pretty pricey to be continually buying it. So we learned how to make Playdough in our kitchen and want to share this easy recipe with you! Ingredients 2 cups of flour 2 cups of water 2 tbsp of oil 2 tsp cream of tartar 1/2 cup of salt food colouring Combine all the ingredients in a pan over low heat and stir constantly until ball forms. Let the dough cool down before adding the food colouring. Once it has cooled, you can push your thumb into the dough and simply put a few drops of food colouring into the hole. Kneed the dough until you obtain your desired colour and presto, perfectly made Playdough! Plus, no harm to the tummies of those little ones who occasionally sneak bites of Playdough!
