Gift Ideas #3

A quick idea for Christmas for the rellies kids. Seeing as I have to post them over, I could make a batch of playdoh as I have a lovely and smooth recipe, colour it up a few different ways and parcel it up with some tools and the recipe.

Incase you are interested, my great recipe is from one of my friends.
1 cup plain flour
1 /4 cup salt
2 tbsp Cream of Tartar
1 tbsp cooking oil
1 cup hot tap water
food colouring

Sift dry ingredients together
If you want to colour the whole batch add colourng to water
Add in liquids and stir well
Cook on high in microwave for 30 second increments, stirring between each.
Its ready when it forms a ball and is not sticky.
Let cool a little
Turn out and knead on surface for a minute to make a nice soft dough.
If the mix isn't coloured, you can knead in colour now.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge to prolong its life
Reheat on very low for 1 minute ot warm and soften if required
