I just made this earlier today. My 2 year old son had never played with play dough before. I was looking for something fun to do using ingredirnt I had in the cupboard. We had so much fun. This recipe was so easy! I seen comments about it "not working" I had to add a little extra water then added too much and had to add a little flour. It all worked out in the end and took less than 10 minutes to make. I will use this recipe again!

I make this with the same recipe but instead of food coloring i use 1-2 kool-aid packets to not only give it color but also a really good scent!

this is pretty much salt dough, cream of tartar is needed to make it have play dough texture, and to make it last for 6 months or longer.

I'm wanting to make blue play doh / clay. But instead of needing it to last for many uses, I want students to be able to take home a dried piece they make. Anyone know if this will air dry ok?

It should... Just leave it in a completely sealed plastic bag and it should dry. ;)

Nope! Just make sure there's not too much water or food coloring!
