Thrifty Thursday: Make Your Own Playdough

If you have kids, chances are that they enjoy playing with play dough. And you also know that very quickly those little tubs of color can become a mass of gray and less fun to play with than a variety of colors. I know it only cost about $3 for 4 little tubs of play-doh, but you can get 5 pounds of flour and a whole container of salt for about $2 (that's a lot of play dough!)

Basic Play-dough
1 C water
1/2 C salt
food coloring
2 T cooking oil
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
2 1/2 C white flour
Boil water, stir in salt. Add food coloring and mix. Add cooking oil, cream of tartar & flour and stir with spoon until mixed. Knead dough to finish mixing dough to get a consistent color.
