Recipe to Make Non Toxic Homemade Playdough

Homemade playdough is easy to make.  And you probably have the ingredients in your cupboard.
This is what you will need:
  • 1 cup flour;
  • 1 cup warm water;
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil; and
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar.

Mix flour, cream of tartar, warm water, vegetable oil and salt. Cook over medium heat until mixture gums up like playdough.  Take off of heat and allow to cool until comfortable to the touch.  Knead.  To add color, try some eco friendly solutions such as beet juice for pink or tumeric for yellow.  You can add a Vitamin E capsule to keep free of bacteria.  Store in tightly sealed container.
