I remembered today making this as a kid. We are home sick at our house and I was trying to think of something easy but fun to do. Hence homemade playdoh! Try it!
1 Cup flour
1 TBSP oil
1 Cup water (add food coloring if desired to the water)
1/2 cup salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
Mix together all ingredients. Cook over medium heat. Stir constantly until dough comes away from the pan. Remove from heat and knead for one minute. Store in a covered container.
