To make homemade play dough:
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
2 Tablespoons cream of tartar
2 cups of very HOT water (almost boiling)
Mix until you get a good consistency. There may be some flour left in the bowl. If it is too runny, add some flour. If it is too dry, add a little water.
After it cools, your kids can play with it.
