I love Play-Doh.  I’m never sure who is more excited when we need new Play-Doh in our classroom, the kids or me!  I love the bright colors.  (Bright pink is my favorite!)  I love the smell when I open a new container.  I love the feel when I squish it between my fingers.  While the following recipe doesn’t replicate Play-Doh’s smell, it makes a large batch and lasts a long time.


                    1 cup flour

                    ½ cup salt

                    2 teaspoons cream of tarter

                    1 cup cold water

                    1 tablespoon oil

                    *Optional Ingredients

                    food coloring or Kool-Aid drink mix


Mix all the ingredients in a saucepan.  Place over heat and stir constantly until the mixture thickens and forms a ball.  Remove from heat and cool.  Keep in a covered container.
