Rainy Day Fun

It's a very rainy day here in Tennessee so I decided on a little indoor fun. What kid (or mom) doesn't love a fresh container of Play-Doh....I'm a sucker for the smell when you open a new one. Our Play-Doh always seems to harden too quickly, but I have found that homemade play dough lasts much longer! It's fun to let the kids mix and stir and make their own colors too!

Play dough
1 cup flour
1 cup warm water
2 teaspoons cream of tarter
1 teaspoon oil
1/4 cup salt
food coloring (add after cooking)

Mix all ingredients (add food coloring last). Stir over medium heat until combined and thick. (It will look like mashed potatoes). Remove from pan, let cool slightly, and knead until blended and smooth, at this point you can separate the dough into 2 or 3 parts to knead in your food coloring. Store in a plastic bag or airtight container when cooled.


Have fun!
