Fantastic Play dogh Recipe

This is long-lasting and soft play dough that I made for Elise's birthday party.  I hot glue gunned lady bug ribbon to 4 oz mason jars, filled them with play dough and gave them away to her party guests.  
**notice a little 3 year old hiding behind the jars?**

1 cup flour (add more if you live in higher elevations)
1/2 cup salt
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 cup water
1 tablespoon oil
Food coloring or unsweetened kool-aid

Combine flour, salt, and cream of tartar in a saucepan.  Mix liquids and gradually stir them into dry ingredients. When mixture is smooth, cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until a ball forms.  Remove from heat and knead until smooth.  

Have fun!
