Now we're playing!

Playdoh is fun dough!  You can mold it, shape it, and if you are Laura you like to paint it (a very messy way of playing with the dough).  Try this quick and easy recipe of home made playdoh for hours (ok minutes) of fun (moms that means you get to check your email, grab a cup of coffee, even a shower--if you are really brave).

2 cups of flour
2 cups of water
1 cups of salt
2 tablespoons of cream of tartar (this makes it stretchy)
food coloring (warning--this stains.......I know.....)

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and break apart any lumps.  Transfer to a pot and heat over medium heat until smooth, turning frequently so that it doesn't stick to the pot.  Once smooth allow it to cool and then play!
