This is truly the best homemade playdough recipe I have ever found. It’s totally safe and non-toxic but doesn’t smell like something you should eat, tempting kids to pop it in their mouth and then spit it right back out all over their shirt. It doesn’t use so much salt that it sucks all the moisture out of your hands when playing with it. But the best part is that it is almost impossible to dry out. Even left open for days, it can be smushed up a bit and as good as new! And the hours of quiet entertainment is well worth the time it takes to clean up the mess… :o)

1/2 cup salt

1 cup flour

2 Tbsp oil

2 tsp cream of tartar

1 cup water

food coloring

Put all ingredients into a saucepan and mix well. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it reaches playdough consistency. Remove and let cool.

Have fun!
