Riley's Valentines

Riley and I made some cute heart shaped play dough valentine's for her Preschool class. It was so cute how she carefully wrote her name on each tage. It was a lot of fun and she asks everyday how many days are left until she gets to give them out. Here is the play dough recipe we used. It is good stuff!

Playdough:
3 Cups of white flour
1 1/2 Cups of salt
1 1/2 Tablespoons of cream of tartar
3 1/4 Cups of water
6 Tablespoons of vegetable oil
Red food coloring
Rolling pin
1. Mix the flour, salt, and cream of tartar in a medium saucepan.

2. In a separate bowl, mix the liquids, adding drops of food coloring until you reach your desired shade.

3. Pour the liquid over the dry ingredients and stir. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture holds together and gets too stiff to stir (it will stiffen even more as it cools), about 5 to 10 minutes. Let it cool.

What a cute idea, of course it would be, you are the craftiest person I know. By the way the peanut butter play dough is tasty but I didn't like it as play dough.
