Making Playdough

Boogs and I signed up to make playdough for his preschool class. They asked for red, strawberry scented playdough.  We ended up with a color between pink and red. Thanks to a package of Kool-Aid, it definitely has a strawberry scent. This is my favorite playdough recipe:

Flour 3cups
Salt 1 1/2 cups
Water 3 cups
Vegetable Oil 2TB.
Cream of tartar 1TB.
Food coloring few drops or unsweetened "Kool-Aid" 1pkg.
Mix ALL of the ingredients in a large saucepan.
Cook over medium low heat, until the dough comes away
from the edges of the pan and it becomes difficult to move the spoon. Remove from heat. Cool until it can be handled.
Place on counter or wax paper knead 3-4 times.
Store in an air tight container.

It always comes out great and stays nice through MULTIPLE play times.
