Sift together in a medium pot:
1 cup white flour
1/4 cup salt
2 Tbsp. Cream of Tartar
In a bowl mix together:
1 cup water
2 tsp. food colouring
1 Tbsp. veg. oil
2 tsp. flavouring ( to make it smell pretty)
Add liquids to the pot, stir well then cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for 3-5 minutes. When the playdough forms a ball in the pot turn it out onto a well floured counter and knead about 1 more cup of flour into it til it isn't sticky anymore.
This needs to be stored in an airtight container in the fridge when not being used.
(We've used this for party favours, the children just love it. Nothing like root beer scented playdough!)
