  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4-6 drops food coloring


  1. Pour all ingredients into a medium sized pot. Stir to combine, then place the pot over medium heat. Stir constantly until the ingredients start to pull away from the edges of the pot and form a ball. Remove from heat and let rest on the counter until cool enough to handle. Knead the play dough until nice and smooth and have fun!
