Naturally made playdough. Recipe and instructions.

Children love to help make this.  The anticipation of the upcoming fun, measuring and counting (1,2,3), and kneading all make great jobs for little assistants.  Adults (or older children) should handle the heating and stirring around the hot stove.

Ingredients:  [note: all ingredients are edible, although this is not intended to be food]

2 c. flour {we used local organic flour and ingredients, and gluten free could be used if necessary}
2 c. water
1 c. salt
3 T. vegetable oil
2 T. cream of tartar (this can be a challenge to find)
Food coloring (optional)  {we used India Tree natural colors; other natural coloring agents could be used, and watercolor paint can work as well}

This recipe makes enough for 1-4 children.  The recipe can be doubled for a larger group.

    7. Little ones love to help knead. (& we’re almost ready to play)

    As it cools enough to handle, knead the dough to achieve uniformity.  (This can be fun for little ones and feels great on the hands.)
