Play Dough Recipe

Hi, my friends!  Emily Flinders asked me for my play dough recipe and I thought some of you might like it, as well.  It cleans up really well - all you have to do is leave it alone and let it dry, then vacuum it up.

Play Dough
2 c. flour
1/2 c. salt
2 T. alum (sometimes I substitute cream of tartar)
3 T. vegetable oil
1 c. boiling water
optional - a few drops of food coloring
Mix all the ingredients and knead until thoroughly mixed.  I do the kneading at first, until it cools a bit, and then let the kids take a turn. Store in a Ziploc bag.

Have fun!
