Homemade Play Dough

This takes a bit of muscle near the end…don’t double the recipe.

3 cups flour (all-purpose or bread)
1½ cups salt
6 tsp cream of tartar (can be found in bulk stores)
3 packages Kool-Aid mix (for color and scent)
3 cups cool water
3 tbsp oil

Combine first four ingredients in a large saucepan. Add water and oil.

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat when dough pulls away from sides and can be pinched without sticking (about 5 minutes).

Turn out dough and knead until smooth.

Store up to a year in airtight container.

Note: if dough becomes sticky while in storage, knead in a bit of extra flour.
