As we wait for the great hurricane Sandy, I did something I’ve always wanted to do. I made playdough!
Mix together in a pot:
1 cup flour
1/4 cup salt
1 T cream of tartar or cornstarch (I ran out of cream of tartar. I thought it worked better than cornstarch, but worked in a pinch.)
1 packet of kool-aid
1 cup of water
1 T oil
The fun part is if you mix all the dry ingredients secretly, then let the kids add the water… it magically turns into the color they “wish”. =)
Stir on low heat until ball forms. It’s sticky but should scrape right off the bottom of the pan.
