Play Dough Anyone?

This year I decided to make play dough for some of the little's in my life. I decided to do pink and purple sparkly for the girls, and blue and green for the boy. I figured I would take pictures step by step so I could share with you. If your having a bad day and just wanna beat the crud out of something, make play dough, it will get all your aggression out (or maybe just some)!

you will need a 1 cup measuring cup, a 1/2 cup measuring cup, 1 TBSP, oil, flour, water, salt, and cream of tartar. Not pictured: A bowl for mixing, and a pot for the water. Optional items: food coloring ( I used Wilton, you don't have too), glitter, a stick to use for the food coloring, and a plastic container (anything airtight would work though)

In a bowl combine 3 cups flour, 1/2 cup salt, and 1 TBSP cream of tartar. mix together well. Here is where you would add the glitter as well.
Boil the water and add 3 TBSP oil, then you will add the water/oil to the flour mixture.
mix, mix, mix, it will start to look like this:
This is where I start to use my hands, I warn you though, it is still very hot and could be to hot for you to handle so use caution! eventually it will look like this, at this point I rinse my hands well and add a tiny bit more water just to smooth it out. 
I split the dough into two balls because I wanted two different colors, if you only want one, then you dont need to do this part.
Now you add the dye and knead knead knead. 

If your cool like me, you will end up rocking some pretty awesome hulk hands:
Store in containers or Ziploc baggies and enjoy!

Have fun!
Love and Hugs,
