Play dough recipe

Hi ya  
Slightly off the usual topic but this is more for my reference. I found this recipe for play dough ages ago somewhere on the internet. Now everytime my boys ask me to make some play dough, I'm off searching for the scrap of paper with the instructions. So to make life a little handier I will share it here and then we can all use it. 

1 cup of flour 
1 cup of warm water 
2 tsp cream of tartar 
1 tsp oil 
1/4 cup of salt 

Place all ingredients in a saucepan and gently heat until it all starts come away from the sides of the pan and into a ball. 
Remove from the pan and knead for a few minutes. Simple! 

Leave it plain or add the food colouring if your choice. We have fun mixing up colours. We have even made it black with gold glitter. 
Hours of fun for them and maybe a bit of sewing time for me. 
Thanks for reading.
