I'm not a pro when it comes to making any sort of dough in the kitchen, but this was really easy and took no time at all to become dough-like in the pot. As an added bonus, I discovered another use for cream of tartar besides the one recipe I bought it for LOL!
I floured the counter and let it cool down a bit before kneading.
Once it cooled, I separated the dough and let Ashleigh & Clayton knead. Ashleigh really got into kneading hers, Clayton didn't really care to touch his LOL!
For coloring, we used packets of Celestial Seasoning Go Stix (water flavoring packets) I had on hand. The Wild Cherry packet gave Ashleigh's a nice pink color and delicious smell.
Voila! Homemade playdough! We had lots of fun making shapes and letters with it. I thought it had a much better texture than regular store bought playdough and seemed to clean up alot easier. Plus if Heaven forbid Reedy would have eaten some (he didn't btw) I wouldn't have freaked because I know exactly what's in it.
We'll definitely be making this again and trying different colors. It would also make a great frugal birthday gift for kids!
