Homemade Playdough

Growing up, my mom would often make this playdough for us. I loved playing with it, especially when it was freshly made, it's so soft and warm.

1 cup flour
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 cup water
1/2 cup salt
1 tbsp. oil
food coloring

Mix all of the ingredients together in a saucepan:and cook over medium-low heat, until the dough forms into a ball. Here's a halfway picture:and here it is fully cooked:
Let it cool for a couple minutes, then knead until the lumps are gone:
There you have it. Good for hours of fun. Store it in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator. It should last at least a month. Have fun.

There was no more creative mother than mine, but I missed out on the play dough thing. My loss!
