Microwave Homemade PlayDoh

Microwave Homemade PlayDoh

I made these as Christmas gifts for the 3 kids at Bennet and Scout's daycare/school. The kids are 3 & 4 so I thought a little craft would be fun.

2 C Flour
1 C salt
2 TBSP cream of tartar
2 pkg. of KoolAid (for scent and color)

I added a cookie cutter and the instructions.


Attach to Jar:
The Best Microwave Play Dough
Mix 2 cups of water and 2 tablespoons of baby oil
Put the dry ingredients from this container in a microwave-safe bowl; add the liquid mixture and stir to mix together. Ask an adult to microwave on high for a total of about 4 minutes, stopping every 30 to 45 seconds to stir again.
Stir each time until a ball forms.
After the play dough is cool enough to touch you're ready to play!

I figured they could use the jar as a piggy bank or something when they're done.
