This is a great project to do with the kids. It’s made with basic kitchen ingredients so you can probably put together a batch today. Makes about 4 cups. Have fun!
2 cups regular white flour
1 cup salt
4 tsp. cream of tartar
2 cups water
1/4 cup vegetable oil (not olive oil)
Your choice food coloring
In a large skillet, place flour, salt and cream of tarter; combine. Make a well in the center of this mixture and pour in water, oil and the food coloring. Over low heat, using a wooden spoon, stir the mixture until it thickens to a modeling clay consistency. Cool it completely then store it in an airtight plastic container.
