The Best Cooked Play Dough

1 cup flour,
1/2 cup salt
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 cup water
1 tablespoon oil
food coloring.

For group settings double the recipe.

Combine flour, salt, and cream of tartar in a saucepan. Mix liquids and gradually stir them into dry ingredients. When mixture is smooth, cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until a ball forms. Remove from heat and knead until smooth. Can use unsweetened Kool-Aid instead of food coloring. The Kool-Aid will color it and make it small great.

Purple and orange are fantastic.

This is a very pliable and long-lasting play dough, with a more elastic consistency than uncooked play dough.

Note: This is something a little extra for playdough to encourage/develop sensory awareness. Once you have made playdough, whilst kneading it to a smooth/soft finish, drop in a few drops of essential oil. (eg/ lavender oil added to purple playdo). Another fun option is add glitter to the playdough. Sprinkle a little at a time whilst kneading it ’till you reach the desired affect. This looks particularly good with black playdough.
