Last week I asked you guys for some Easter basket goodie ideas that didn’t involve candy, and you all knocked it out of the park! Several of you mentioned play-dough. I remember my mom making play-dough for me when I was a kid, but I have never made it. You guys. . . . why has it taken me this long? It was so easy! I colored it orange, put it in a piping bag, tied a tag and ribbon around it and voila! Perfect for any kiddos Easter basket!
2 cups flour
2 cups water
1 cup salt
2 Tbs oil
4 Tbs Cream of Tartar
~Mix all the ingredients EXCEPT for the food coloring in a pot and cook over medium/low heat stirring to get the lumps out.
~Once it begins to thicken, add food coloring to desired color.
~Remove from the heat when it starts to form a big ball (be careful not to let it burn).
If you want to fancy it up, put it in a piping bag, tie with ribbon, and add an Easter tag. I found these cute free printable tags from (www.iheartnaptime.com).
Thanks again for the great ideas, and happy dough making!
