Valentine's for Kids (non candy!)

Here is the recipe for the Homemade Playdough that I will be making for Cole to give out as Valentine's Day instead of candy!
1 cup flour
1 cup water
1/4 cup salt
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 Tbls. vegetable oil
food coloring (I used 4 drops)
Just dump all the ingredients into your pot and give them a good stir.
Put your pot on the stove and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it forms into a ball.
As soon as it joins into one big glob, take it off the heat and dump it onto your counter or some wax paper. Wait for it to cool, then knead it a few times until it is nice and soft.
After it cools I took a cookie cutter and shaped it into Hearts and bagged it up to be put into individual goody boxes. I couldn't help but add some candies in! After all, what's Valentine's Day without CANDY!
