1/2 c. salt
2 t. cream of tartar
1 c. water
1 T. oil
food coloring

Directions:
Combine flour, salt, and cream of tartar in a saucepan. Mix liquids and gradually stir them into dry ingredients. When mixture is smooth, cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until a ball forms. Remove from heat and knead until smooth. Can use unsweetened Kool-Aid instead of food coloring. The Kool-Aid will color it and make it smell great. (I use only food coloring, because I don't want to make it tempting to eat).
This is a very pliable and long-lasting play dough, with a more elastic consistency than uncooked play dough.
Note: A fun option is to add glitter to the playdough. Sprinke a little at a time while kneading it until you reach the desired affect. This looks particularly good with black playdough.
Store in a Zip-Llock bag or Tupperware when not being played with.

Personal Notes:
Nicholas and Grandma made this recipe when his mommy and daddy were on a cruise for their 10th wedding anniversary. Nicholas chose to add blue coloring, and had fun rolling it out with a rolling pin and driving his matchbox cars on it to make tracks.
