Kids crafts - How to make Play Dough

I had so much fun making this the other day for my son.

Take a pot and fill it with;
1 cup water
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 1 / 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
food coloring of your choice - I use 10 drops per color or more to darken.

Place you water in the pot on low heat, next at all the other ingredients and stir for a few minutes until it gets thick and then shut off the heat. Once it cools down a bit taken it out of the pan. I roll mine into three ball shaped and then place them in a zip lock bag to keep the dough from drying out. I gave my children plastic knifes, a rolling pin and cookie cutters and they had a blast.
