How to cook playdough in a hurry!

This month we are the family in charge of supplies for my son’s pre-school class. One of our assignments is to make a fresh batch of play dough each week. I haven’t made this since I was a little kid! So, last night we were frantically searching for a recipe and gathering up all the ingredients (which meant a late night trip to the grocery store) to make orange play dough. I found these super easy instructions on the Instructables website. These instructions are step by step and easy to follow. I’m sure I’ll have the recipe memorized by the end of the school year.

Here is the basic list of ingredients:

2 cups flour
2 cups warm water
1 cup salt
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon cream of tartar
food coloring
