Here's our favorite recipe
It's a very quick recipe, and I think it keeps better than purchased playdoh. We keep it in plastic kitchen containers with lids. Sliced turkey tubs are the perfect size for a batch. You can also mix the dry ingredients and keep in small baggies. Then when you need a new batch, all you have to do is boil the water and oil and mix it together right in the baggie (after cooling, of course)!
Mix 1 cup of flour, 1/3 cup of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon cream of tarter in a bowl. Meanwhile, bring to boil 1 cup of water, one tablespoon of cooking oil and a few drops of food coloring. A little flavoring essence could be added, too. Pour hot mixture into flour mixture and stir. Add more four if necessary.
There's nothing like getting your hands in to a fresh, warm batch of strawberry playdoh. I'm such a kid. What I need to be doing is getting my hands into a fresh warm sink of breakfast dishes!(Recipe taken from Kidsparkz, a wonderfully huge downloadable preschool curriculum. After downloading and printing, I put the pages in page protectors in a binder. They have lasted perfectly through the years - through many playdoh batches! Looks like the website also has a lot of free stuff - I haven't been there for awhile. Wow! The cost has gone up to 50 bucks. It certainly wasn't that expensive when I bought it. But there are still some free pages available.)
