best play dough ever (a recipe)

best playdough recipe ever by kojodesignsAs I look at the calendar, with winter stretching on for the next few months, I am determined not to let cabin fever get the best of us. Which means I’ve been filling up my ‘mama school’ board on pinterest with all sorts of indoor activities that Burke and Pi might like.

To make this most fabulous playdough, help your children measure and mix in a sauce pan-

1/2 C. salt
2 C. water
2 Tbsp oil
1/4 C cream of tartar
a few drops of food coloring

Place the pan over medium heat and stir until dough is completely formed and no longer sticky. It doesn’t take long – keep stirring! Allow it to cool before dumping it out for your patiently not-so-patiently waiting kiddos.

Do you have any tried and true cabin-fever-fender-offers? We’d love suggestions!
