Making Play-Doh at home

I really wanted to have Play-Doh in my room, but I wanted it to be all natural, non-toxic, and kid friendly.  So, after scouring blogs I found a recipe for homemade Play-Doh.

Here's the recipe:
2 cups flour
2 cups warm water
1 tbs cream of tarter (do not omit!)
2 tbs vegetable oil
1 cup salt

Combine all the ingredients and cook over low heat until the doh begins to pull away from the pan.  Dump the mixture out on silicone mats or aluminum foil to cool, then divide and add food coloring and knead away.  I did two batches which made the equivalent of 15 cans.  All for less than $10.00.  All I need to make more is some salt, it's the only thing I ran out of.

Pictures coming later.
