Recipe for Pond Playdough
2 cups + 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tbs cream of tartar
3 tbs oil
4 drops of tea tree oil
1 cup boiling water
1. Add 2 cups flour, salt, cream of tartar, tea tree oil and oil to a large bowl.
2. Add the boiling water and quickly mix everything together. The dough will be sticky and seem too wet at this point.
3. Dump the dough to a flat surface and slowly add a little bit of the remainder flour at a time while kneading. Once the dough is a nice soft texture and no longer sticky stop adding flour.
4. Divide dough into 3 balls and knead watercolors into each ball. We did brown, green and blue to keep with our pond theme.
