RAMPP's Playdough Recipe
Thank you for volunteering to make playdough for your child's class! Usually, we like to get a double recipe or 2 different colors. Your child's teacher will tell you if they want it to be uncolored.
2 Cups Flour
1/2 Cup Salt
4 Tablespoons Cream of Tartar
2 Cups Water
Food Coloring (add into water and count the volume of coloring)
2 Tablespoons Oil
Mix the flour, salt and cream of tartar in a medium pot. Add food coloring to the water and add this water and the oil to the flour mixture. Mix thoroughly. Put on the stove on medium heat. Stir constantly while it cooks for 3-5 minutes. Eventually, you will get a large blob of playdough. Take it out and knead it. Store in an air-tight container. A ziploc bag is fine but let it cool some before putting it in the bag.
(It's important to stir it constantly to keep it from sticking to the pot.)
