Kitchen Korner (Play Dough) - Dolly Lawler

Here it is!  A "no-calorie" recipe to start off the New Year.  J  It's a recipe to cook up on one of those cold winter days when your child is home from school with the sniffles and already bored with the expensive toys he or she received at Christmas time.  Kneading and molding play dough is not only fun and entertaining for your child, but it employs the creative juices that flow so abundantly during those early childhood years.  I' m pretty much out of the loop when it comes to knowing what children like to do, but play dough provided some great times for Jud and Frank (and provided me some afternoons to tie up a few loose ends around the house with no interruptions).  I know.  You're going to say, "But it gets on the floor."  Not to worry.  Those little dough crumbs dry quickly and can be easily swept up before suppertime.  Our boys had a little broom and dust pan of their own to use on such occasions. 
½ C. Salt
1 C. Flour
1 TBS. Cream of Tarter
1 TBS. Vegetable Oil
1 C. Water

Combine ingredients in a sauce pan.  Stirring constantly, cook over low heat until mixture is the right consistency for play dough.  It will look like mashed potatoes, but be a little firmer.  Turn mixture out on cutting board or wax paper.  When it's cool enough to handle, it's cool enough to play with.  If it's sticky, just put it back in the pan and cook a tad longer.  This play dough can be put in an air tight container, stored in the refrigerator, and played with over and over.  I always doubled this recipe.
