1 c. flour
1/2 cup salt
1 T. cooking oil
1 T. cream of tartar (if you use a little more it turns out even smoother 1 1/4-1 1/2 T)
1 c. water
Food coloring of your choice
Add-ins of your choice (i.e. spices, extracts, glitter, etc.)
Stir ingredients together well. Just measure them into the saucepan you will be using to cook the dough, but mix them well before heating up the pan. Over medium heat cook the dough, stirring constantly until it forms a ball. When it starts to get dry looking, take it off the stove. Knead, knead, knead! It will be hot to the touch but keep trying to knead it.
It was great when Cameron wanted to make purple because we could practice mixing colors! This was a really fun lesson for him to see! We used red and blue food coloring. It was hard for Cameron to squirt an exact number of squirts in! He wanted to squirt it ALL in! It turned out great and he was so impressed how the red and blue turned purple! This was fun!
