Christmas Playdough

For someone who has never liked the texture and smell of Playdoh...
I am so in L.O.V.E. with Homemade Playdough!!

This month I made 3 colors.
I added glitter to them!

Total cost...$1 for the glitter!
(I had the rest in the kitchen!)

I am making this for "Fun Party Favors" at UNO's Christmas Party at school!

Homemade Playdough
1 c. flour
1/2 cup salt
1 T. cooking oil
1 T. cream of tartar
1 c. water
Food coloring of your choice
Add-ins of your choice (i.e. spices, extracts, glitter, etc.)
Stir ingredients together well.  Just measure them into the saucepan you will be using to cook the dough, but mix them well before heating up the pan.  Over medium heat cook the dough, stirring constantly until it forms a ball.  (NOTE:  When it starts to pull away from the sides somewhat and clump together and most of the "wet-looking" parts look dry, it's ready to remove from the pan.)  Turn dough onto a board (or the countertop) and knead until very smooth.
Recipe borrowed  from here!
