What you need:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tbsp oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar

What you do:

  1. Put all the ingredients into a pot and use a wooden spoon to stir them together over medium heat.
  2. Make sure to continuously stir the dough until it sticks together and forms a ball.
  3. When the mixture has formed a ball, remove the pot from the element. Wait for a moment for the dough to cool. (You can stir it around with your spoon to help in cool more quickly.) When it's cool enough to touch, it's time to knead!
  4. Dust the counter with some flour and knead the ball of dough until it is cool.
  5. You can add food coloring to the dough to make it really colorful, or you can sculpt it, leave it out to air-dry and then paint it.
  6. One other awesome addition to this dough is sparkles - if you add glitter, your dough will be gorgeous and sparkly when it dries!
