2 cups plain flour
1 cup salt
1 cup water
2 tbs. olive oil
2 tbs. cream of tartar (this makes the dough last longer)
Mix these together and warm them in a pan on the stove. Let the mixture cool down a little and then form it into a ball before kneading it for a few minutes. Remember to soak the pan immediately before the remnants become caked on. Food colouring can be added.
The dough will last for a few months as long as it is kept in an airtight plastic box to prevent it from drying out.
I read The Wonder Years and saw this recipe. I tried making this dough for Dot to play and the texture is good to make balls, figurine and so on. After playing, I left it in the fridge and the following day it is still good to play.
It only takes less than 10 minutes to prepare the dough. Give it a go!
