Play Dough!

I found a play dough recipe on Pinterest via How Does She? and made it for Ada.
It is so easy & took me back to Joy School...sitting at Lisa Griffith's kitchen table in 1988!
This is Ada's first experience with play dough:
She loved it! Even picked up the purple lump and hugged it.
Happy girl. Happy Mommy :) 
Here's the recipe: 

1 cup flour

1 cup water

1/4 cup salt

2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 T. vegetable oil
food coloring (I used 2 drops red and 2 drops blue. At first it looked gray and ugly but once it cooked it became a pretty purple) 
Add all ingredients to a medium pot and mix. 
Put your pot on the stove and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it forms into a ball.
As soon as it joins into one big glob, take it off the heat and dump it onto your counter or some wax paper.  Wait for it to cool, then knead it a few times until it is nice and soft.
I keep it in a plastic tupperware and in the fridge.
