2 cups flour
2 cups water
1 cup salt
2 Tablespoons canola oil
1 Tablespoon cream of tartar
food coloring or other desired color agents like carrot juice etc.


1. Mix all of the ingredients together in a pot over low heat and stir until the dough pulls away from the pan and forms a ball.

2. Take warm dough out and place on counter and knead, then divide into balls for coloring.

3. Make a hole in the center of each ball and place desired color in each section and then knead each ball again to mix in the color. (You may want to use plastic wrap or gloves for this stage)

4. Voila! The playdough is ready to play with. Make sure to store in an air-tight container.
