Play Dough
1/2 cup salt
1 cup flour
1 cup water
2 tsp. cream of tartar
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
food colouring

Mix dry ingredients. Add oil and colouring to water. Add liquid to dry ingredients. Cook and stir over medium heat until it turns to a real rubbery ball. Work for a few minutes when cool. Store in Air tight container.

**Special Tip From Mother of 7 in Israel

If you use liquid dish detergent instead of oil its a quick cleanup after the fun!

** Great Idea from Daycare provider in Milwaukee

Instead of using food coloring...why not use Kool-Aid
It works wonderfully. It gives the dough the color you want and a very nice scent to go along with it. Color does not stain children's hands as badly either.
