Salt Play Dough

A huge part of childhood is discovery and learning.  And let's be honest, who doesn't love playing with playdough.  I love when i make it and get to be creative with it.  This is a great recipe that makes silky smooth dough.  Enjoy it!

2 cups flour
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup salt
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
Up to 1.5 cups boiling water (adding in increments until it feels just right)
food coloring 
few drops glycerine (optional- adds more shine!)

Mix the flour, salt, cream of tartar and oil in a large mixing bowl.
If you are making your dough all one color the add your food coloring TO the boiling water then add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients Stir continuously until it becomes a sticky, combined dough
Add the glycerine (optional)
If you are going to color your dough multiple colors then Allow the dough to cool down then take it out of the bowl, add a small amount of food color gel and knead it vigorously* for a couple of minutes until all of the stickiness has gone and the color is well mixed. * This is the most important part of the process, so keep at it until it’s the perfect consistency!*
(If it remains a little sticky then add a touch more flour until just right)
