The best play-dough recipe

We were in charge of making green play dough for Vivi's and Tonito's classrooms for December. The warm and squishy dough is so fun to squeeze even mommy couldn't stop from playing. Seriously. This is the best recipe ever:
Play dough Recipe
Mix food coloring with 2 cups of water. Mix 2 cups of flour, 1 cup salt, 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil and 1 tablespoon of cream of tartar. Add colored water to the dry ingredients and mix. Cook mixture over medium heat until spongy. Knead and let cool. Store in an airtight container. We added a couple of drops of peppermint oil to the dough so it would smell Christmas-y (though I don't recommend that if you have kids too little to understand it isn't food!!). The best part about this play dough is that it lasts for SO much longer than store bought play-dough!! We have some pink dough from at least 2 years ago that Vivi still plays with.
