Easy playdough recipe with vibrant colour and highly moldable for sculpting challenges
Add the flour, salt and cream of tartar to a medium mixing bowl. Whisk to mix well. Set aside.
Add the water and vegetable oil to a medium sauce pan. Heat until boiling and then from stove top.
Add the flour mixture to the hot water and stir continuously until a stiff ball of dough forms. Remove the dough from pan and place on your work-center. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
Knead dough until soft and pliable (about 5 minutes). Divide the dough into 4 equal pieces.
Place the 4 pieces of dough on your work center and flatten a bit with the inside of your palm. Apply food coloring to the middle of each piece: red, black, yellow and white.
Fold each piece of dough over to cover the food coloring and begin to knead. You will want to knead the dough until the color is completely distributed. For less messy hands, you can place each piece of dough in a Ziploc bag and knead it while it is in the bag or use disposable gloves.
