Smell Dough! YUM!
Add spices or extracts (like I did with these), add glitter, make it edible, any color you can imagine.
The recipe is easy.
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 Tablespoon Cream of Tartar (I suggest Wal Mart. It was $2. Kroger it was $4)
1 cup water
1 Tablespoon oil
Any additives you would like.
I had some little containers - I need to order more -
Each batch of dough made 4 small containers.
Peppermint (adding peppermint extract)
Cherry (adding cherry extract and red food coloring)
The grocery store has lots of extracts you can add. Banana, raspberry, lime, rum (although you probably shouldn't make rum scented play dough....). You can also add cocoa powder for chocolate scented. Or pumpkin pie spice. Or make apple pie dough with cinnamon, cloves and all spice.
Sorry for the crappy pictures (and lack there of...) this goes together super quick. I'm off to the store to pick up some sticker paper so I'll take a picture of the package all wrapped up soon!
