I thought I'd share the best playdoh recipe I've ever used. It's easy, cheap and lasts a looonnngg time! How many things (that your kids play) with can you say that about?
3 c. flour
1 1/2 c. salt
3 c. water
3 t. cream of tartar
4 T. oil
Food color (takes ALOT)
Mix together on low heat. I use "husband" power mixer.
Enjoy! Don't walk away from this on your burner. I will not be responsible for what it does to your pots! Ha ha ha! Not that I know this from experience or anything!
