DIY Play Dough

It has become a struggle to keep my little toddler from getting bored. We go to the park almost every day and coloring has become a fun (not too messy) activity that she now likes to do as well. I was searching on pinterest this weekend and found this quick DIY play dough recipe. It literally took us about 5 minutes to make with about 30 minute cooling time. 

She loved playing with it, only tried eating it once, and kept her entertained for almost an hour! Sounds like a win in my book :)

My cute sous chef  

DIY Play dough
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. cream of tarter
2 TB + 2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup water
1/2 TB vegetable oil
food coloring 

Mix all of the ingredients together in a (nonstick) sauce pan over medium low heat until begins to thicken and gather around spoon. Add in desired food coloring and stir until combined. Cool on wax paper and enjoy!

How simple is that recipe! So easy to make and can be kept in a ziploc baggie to use over and over again!
