play dough

We made play dough today! I thought it would be fun for them to measure things and do a little scientific experiment. After the dough was made, I sneaked a few drops of food coloring into the middle of each dough ball. Then I said, "If you were really great students today, your play dough will change colors when you squish it." And so the squishing began...
Laughing and giggles followed. Here's how you make play dough... 1 cup water, 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup salt, 1 Tbs. oil, 2 tsp cream of tartar. Heat all ingredients in pot over medium heat. Stir constantly until dough begins to stick and take shape. Form into balls. Add food coloring. Store in ziplock baggies.
