5 cups water
5 cups flour
2 1/2 cups salt
3 Tablespoons cream of tartar
10 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1.Mix water, salt, cream of tartar, and food coloring. Cook on medium-low heat, stirring regularly until mixture is hot. Add oil. Stir in flour a cup at a time, stirring in between each addition.
2.Mix until playdough pulls away from pan and is no longer sticky (pinch it between your fingers to test). Dump dough on counter, let cool a bit, then knead.
3.After the dough cooled down a bit, we kneaded in some glitter for fun but you don't need to do this.
* This recipe makes a huge batch of dough. It made two large size glass jars and this play dough is so much better then the store bought kind. Its stays so much softer and is so much easier to get out of stuff lol
