How to Make No cook playdough  

1. Boil 1- 1 1/2 cups of water and put in microwave for a couple of minutes.

2. Mix together your flour, salt, cream of tartar, and olive oil and then add the water in  increments . You may not use all the water so mix in slowly.  Mix until it forms into a play dough texture.You may not use all the water so make sure you’re mixing it to form the dough consistency.

3. Then divide out the play dough and add a different food coloring to each bowl, to create different colors.

4. When you go to mix, use a spoon at first and then knead the dough, to really get the color mixed in. It can dye your hands so wear gloves or be aware.

Then play and have fun, and then store in an airtight container. This will last around two weeks before it begins to dry out.
