More homemade fun!

Today we gave the homemade playdough thing a go.
Here's what came of it :)...

Oh yeah. Little M and Sweet K had fun too - although Sweet K is not yet sure about the squishy texture between her tiny little fingers :). But here's proof that I'm not the only one who played today!

I like it because it has a better texture than store-bought playdough, is safe in case the little ones decide it's fun to put in their mouth (though there is a fair amount of salt, so it probably won't stay there long!!) and apparently it does not dry out as fast, either (since this is my first crack at this, I'll let you know how long it is before we have little doughy crumbles all over the place!).

1 c. flour
1/2 c. salt
1 c. water
1 Tbsp. oil
2 tsp. cream of tartar
food coloring

Mix ingredients in a sauce pan, and stir constantly over medium heat until mush turns into the shape of a doughy ball. Add some food coloring at some point in the process. Once it is cool enough to touch (which is almost right away) knead until it is a playdough-ish consistency.

See - super easy.
That's MY kinda recipe!!
