Here’s that recipe I promised in my boredom buster list. This comes staight from co-op preschool, and I do believe it’s the best one out there. Much easier to clean up than the other stuff…unless you’re my friend Brenda who manages to let her adorable children play with the real stuff without a single crumb being left. They don’t mix the colors either. I’m telling you, it’s amazing!
Also a quick note that I’m giving away a magazine subscription over at the FB page.
1 C. flour
1/2 C. salt
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 C. water
1 1/2 Tbsp. oil
t tsp. vanilla
Mix dry ingredients. Mix wet ingredients and add food color as desired. Sit wet into dry. Cook over medium heat Stirring Constantly until a lump of dough forms. Remove from heat and knead on countertop for 2-3 minutes.
Another fun variation is Salt-Flour Dough This can be cut and painted to make tree ornaments or whatever.
1 C salat
2 C. flour
1 C. water
Blend salt and flour. Add water a bit at a time. Knead dough until firm. Bake at 30-45 minutes in a 325 degree oven.
The cooking parts are a grown-up job (but you knew that, right)?
