1 cup water
1/2 cup salt
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
1 tablespoon oil
Cook all of these together in a saucepan on the stove over med-high heat for a few minuets, until it forms a lump in the pan. Turn it out onto lightly floured surface counter, and knead.
Add food coloring if desired.
Keep in a Tupperware container to keep it soft.
Once it looks like this, it's ready to turn out and knead.
The kids helped.
This kept them busy for a few hours.
Okay, maybe it just felt like a few hours...
It was peaceful. :)
Time to think.
Time to sip a coffee.
Time to chill.
