1 cup (250ml) boiling water
1/2 cup (125ml) salt
1 cup (250ml) flour
1 tbsp. (15ml) each oil , cream of tartar (a preservative), and food coloring.
Boil the water, add the salt, and bring back to the boil. Remove from heat, add the flour, oil, cream of tartar and food coloring. When the mixture is cool enough to handle, knead until it’s smooth. Warm playdough is one of the nicest materials there is.
