As I have mentioned before, I teach preschool 4 mornings a week at my church. I have precious three year olds. We are talking about penguins, snow, ice and fun winter things this month. I made this play dough to start off our unit.
2 cups water
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
4 tsp. cream of tartar
4 tsp. oil
Combine all ingredients except the glitter in a large, heavy saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon; mixture will thicken and pull away from the sides of the pan. I keep stirring scraping the bottom - this mixture gets very thick and quick; Form the dough into a ball, place on wax paper; Allow to cool just a bit and knead in glitter.
*I added some clear vanilla extract to make it smell yummy!
