Step 1: Getting All Your Ingrediants
First to make this stuff your going to need a few kitchen ingredients:
1. 2 cups of flower
2. 2 cups of water
3. 1 cup of salt
4. 1 tablespoon of cream of tartar (found in most grocery stores)
5. 1 tablespoon of vegi oil
6. food color of your choice
Step 2: Cooking
Put all of the ingredients in to the pot except the food coloring. (flour, water, vegi oil, cream of tartar, and salt)
Put the heat on low and stir until it becomes a blob or mess that looks like mash potatoes.
Step 3: Kneeding the Dough
Take it out of the pan and knead it so it becomes play dough not play potatoes.
Make then into smaller balls so they are more manageable, this helps in keeping all the play dough together.
once they are all kneaded up you can add food coloring to them and make sure you knead it in them so you get one even color.
Step 4: Storage
once the dough is in your desired color and size you can put theses in Tupperware or plastic bags.
I prefer plastic bags so you can use your Tupperware for other things.
