Simple DIY Easter Play Doh - Newport Mesa Moms

Moms, today we have a super easy DIY for those Easter baskets thanks to our mom friends on the South Shore!  We all know kids love play doh, and this all-natural recipe can be made in about 10 minutes with only 6 ingredients!

1 cup flour
1 cup water
2 tsp cream of tartar
1/3 cup salt
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
natural food coloring
(optional) 6-10 drops of essential oils. We used orange, lime, lavender, grapefruit, lemon and peppermint. Smells SO good!

In a saucepan, combine all dry ingredients.  Add vegetable oil.  Over medium to low heat, stir mixture until it thickens (approx. 2-3 mins).  Continue to stir until play doh begins to gather around your spoon.  Remove from heat.  Knead out any remaining lumps.  Separate the play doh into individual balls.  Add natural food coloring and essential oils.  We made 3 batches and divided each batch in half for a total of six colors/scents.  We used these plastic jars to store the play doh.
