Here's a recipe for non-edible homemade play-doh, although my mom and sister and anyone who knew me in my formative years will tell you, that didn't stop me from eating it. I must have had an iodine deficiency cause I tasted it tonight and dang is it ever salty.
Anyhow, this is a slightly different version than the stuff my mom made us, as it requires the use of a cook top and sauce pan.
2 c. Flour
1 c. Salt
2 TBSP. cooking oil
2 tsp. cream of tartar
This stuff is super easy to make.
1.Pour all ingredients except for the food coloring into a saucepan, turn heat on low and stir. The dough will start to pull away from the sides of the pot, and you can fold it inwards until the dough forms a ball.
2.Once the dough forms a ball, turn out onto a non-porous countertop or cutting board covered in wax paper. ( caution: dough will be warm to hot)
3.Knead dough until it becomes elastic and pliable.
4.Separate dough into 3 balls
5.Add food coloring to each ball, and fold inwards until color is dispersed throughout dough ball.
Store dough in airtight ziploc bag & refrigerate for longevity.
