We go through so much play dough in this house I thought it was finally time to try making my own. When I looked online for recipes, most of them used cream of tartar which I didn't have. So instead I went the natural site recipe road and found one just using flour, vinegar, water and food coloring (optional). It turned out great and my son had a wonderful experience helping making it and playing with it.. Also held off his endless pleas for me to play Lego with him for a while. An added bonus!
