I live in a subdivision filled with amazing and friendly neighbors. This time of year we love to drop off little gifts to each other, but honestly, I end up throwing SO much away, because it tends to be candy, cookies and lots of tempting food and you all know i'm on a mission!
So, with a neighborhood filled with kids, instead of going the food route, my son and I made scented Christmas Playdough! It’s the perfect gift being easy and fun to make, inexpensive, and being in Michigan, gives the kids something to play with while stuck inside all winter long.
HOMEMADE PLAYDOUGH RECIPE
1. Mix water, salt, cream of tartar, and food coloring. Cook on medium-low heat,
stirring regularly until mixture is hot. Add oil. Stir in flour a cup at a time, stirring in between each addition. Mix until playdough pulls away from pan and is no longer sticky (pinch it between your fingers to test). Dump dough on counter, let cool a bit, then knead.
