Fun with play dough...

Valentine's Day is this week so I thought it would be fun to do something with hearts each day this week. Today I made play dough and Colette made a heart ... along with other shapes. I think she really had the most fun making birthday cakes for her doll. I have included our recipe for play dough.

Play Dough

1 Cup flour
1/2 Cup salt
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 Cup water
1 Tablespoon cooking oil
food coloring

Mix flour, salt, cream of tartar in a pan. Slowly add the water, cooking oil and food coloring (or wait and add food coloring when you knead it). Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until dough forms a ball. Turn out onto wax paper, let cool for a few minutes, and knead until smooth. Divide into 2 balls. Store in plastic air tight container.
