Rainy day play dough

We have a huge craft cupboard full of activities for rainy days or busy times when I need the children to sit still for a minute.
A staple in the cupboard is play dough, I seem to forget about it though and when all other options are exhausted I think "ahhh why didn't I remember the play dough earlier!", as it is always a crowd pleaser.

This recipe is so quick and is made from items always in my pantry, I have been known to whip up a bunch when we have impromptu visitors with little ones to play and as its a favorite I thought I would share.  

What you'll need:
1/2 cup salt
1 cup plain flour
2 tbs cream of tartar
1 cup water
1 tbs oil
food coloring

What to do:
Mix all ingredients together in a sauce pan over medium heat until dough is pliable.

Allow to cool.

Stores in zip lock bags in the fridge for up to six months.

What is your fail safe rainy day activity? I would love to know!

Happy Days x
