Home Made Dough
Every week while my children were younger we used to make our very own dough. It is a substance like play dough. My kids loved this project. Cooking and doing fun crafts should be a part of every childhood.
Here is the recipe…
1 cup of all purpose flour
2 teaspoons of cream of tartar (find it in the spice section of a local grocery store)
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of water
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla, lavender, peppermint, or any essence oil you like
Add about 20 drops of food color. Count out loud as adding. We used to do one color a week. We would do one week red, next week blue, then the next week make purple.
Cook all the ingredients in a 2 quart pot. Stir over the heat until it becomes a ball.
Remove from the heat, and cut in half…let it sit because it is very hot!!! It will keep for more than a week in a freezer bag.
Make sure the kids don’t eat it!
