Homemade Play-Dough Wraps

These lettuce wraps look good, don't they? They were expertly constructed by talented hands.

Kids of all ages love playdough. But don't fret if you don't have any on hand. The kids can make their own playdough and it can be ready in 10 minutes or less. Instant gratification for them, and hours of happy, creative kids for you.

Depending on their ages, the kids might need you to help vigorously stir the mixture over the stove. As soon as it can be handled, the kids can start to play with it. They love the feel of warm playdough in their hands.

Even though all the ingredients are edible, the dough should not be eaten.

So invite your best friend to stay overnight and in the morning you can make playdough in your pajamas! Life is good.

Homemade Play-Dough

1 cup flour
1/2 cup table salt
1 cup water
food coloring
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
2 tablespoons cooking oil

Stir all ingredients together in a medium saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until it becomes rubbery, about 2-3 minutes. It will be lumpy before it becomes rubbery. It can be used as soon as it is cool enough to handle (kids love warm playdough). Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
