This is a great way to combine a cooking lesson with play time.  The dough is especially fun to knead, because it is as soft as a baby’s butt!  This recipe makes a lot of dough.  Cut it in half if you’d like less.  And, if anyone puts it in their mouth, it’s vegan! 

2 cups water
1-2 tsp. food coloring
          Mix in heavy Dutch oven.

2 cups flour
1 cup salt
4 tsp. cream of tartar
2 Tbl. vegetable oil
flavoring/fragrance (opt.)
          Add and mix well until lumps are gone. 

Cook over medium heat until it sticks together in a ball.  Cool, then knead.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
