Orange Playdough!

We made our first successful homemade play dough today! I found the recipe over at Hubbard's Cupboard- a great resource for preschool activities. I reduced the recipe since we didn't need 6 tubs of orange playdough:

Orange Playdough

1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 cup water
1 Tbsp oil
1 tbsp orange extract
red & yellow food coloring to reach desired color

1. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan
2. Cook over medium heat until mixture pulls away from sides of pan- be sure to stir constantly!
3. Knead & play!
4. Store in an airtight container

Jonathan helped me with the food coloring and watched as I cooked it. We pulled out some Springtime cookie cutters and he had a lot of fun!
