Easy playdough recipe!

Here's a playdough recipe from a local mom...You would probably want to double or triple it.
For a handprint project, since you'll need to make a deep, round mold that is large enough to accommodate your child's hand.
This is a lot of cream of tartar; I think you could use less (or use teaspoons, not TBLSP per batch). Also, you can buy a HUGE thing of C of T at Surfas (at National & Washington), which is much cheaper than the grocery store. My kids like this dough much better than store-bought b/c it is softer and you > can have a lot of it.> > Also, you should bring a disposable pie pan to help form the mold and hold > the playdough while the plaster hardens.> > > 1 cup flour> 1/2 cup salt> 1 cup water> 2 tablespoon oil> 2 tablespoon cream of tartar> > Mix flour, salt, cream of tartar and oil, and slowly add the water. Cook > over medium heat, stirring until dough becomes stiff. Turn out onto wax > paper and let cool. Knead the dough with your hands until of proper consistency.>
