Parenting Tip: Teaching Children How to Feel Their Feelings

My favorite playdough recipe

1 cup white flour

1/2 cup salt

1 Tbsp. oil

2 Tbsp. cream of tarter

1 cup water

Optional: food coloring, flavoring extract or spice (add afterwards when kneading)

Mix flour, salt and cream of tarter in a sauce pan. Add the oil and water and heat over low heat until it starts to thicken. Stir constantly so it doesn't burn! Once it is the consistency of dough, take it off the heat and add your food coloring, extract and/or spices.

Spread out on a cookie sheet and let cool for a little while. Once it is warm to the touch, knead lightly until cool.
