Homemade Playdough

Everyone in class loves the play dough I make for Galoop. So much better than the store bought (very smooth and it does not crumble at all). Here is the recipe - super easy and it lasts at least 3 months!

    •    3 cups of flour or rice flour 

    •    1 ½ cups of salt

    •    6 teaspoons of cream of tartar

    •    3 tablespoons of vegetable oil

    •    3 cups of water

    •    Food coloring

    •    Any extract you'd like (mint, lemon, coconut) or spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, coco powder) or no extract at all.

Pour flour, salt, and cream of tartar in a large cooking pot, mix well. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix again. Place on the stove and cook over medium heat mixing constantly with a wooden spoon until a ball starts forming and it pulls away from the sides (6 to 8 minutes). Remove from heat, take out from pot, and knead the dough until it matches playdough consistency (1-2 minutes). After it cools off, place in air tight container or ziplock bag. Enjoy the endless fun play dough provides!
