Homemade Playdough

Colored Playdough

1 cup water
1 tbs vegetable oil
1/2 cup salt
1 tbs cream of tartar
food coloring
1 cup flour

 Combine water, oil, salt, cream of tartar, and food coloring in a saucepan and heat until warm.  Remove from heat and add flour. Stir, then knead until smooth.  The cream of tartar makes this dough last 6 months or longer, so resist the temptation to omit this ingredient if you don't have it on hand.  Store this dough in an airtight container or freezer bag.
