Colored Playdough

From The Toddler's Busy Book by Trish Kuffner p. 355
Makes 1 big blob

1 cup water
1 TBSP vegetable oil
1/2 cup salt
1 TBSP cream of tartar
food coloring
1 cup flour

Combine water, oil, salt, cream of tartar (which helps the dough last for about six months), and food coloring of your choice in a saucepan and heat until warm. Remove from heat and stir in flour. Stir, then knead until smooth. Store in an airtight container or Ziploc bag.

I made five half recipes and filled these small containers I found at the dollar store (10/$1) It was a perfect amount to fill 4 with a half recipe. Now they are all ready for party treats for our upcoming rainbow party!
