Play dough is a great way to keep kids busy and it's really relaxing! I made gluten free play dough for my daughter's art class!
The recipe is super simple:
1 cup gf flour mix
1 cup water
1/2 cup salt
1 tablespoon oil
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
food coloring ( a few drops to several table spoons if you want brilliant color:)
Mix ingredients in a medium size pot, cook over medium heat-stirring continuously, until play dough thickens and forms large doughy ball. I've found it's perfectly done when the entire ball is clinging to the spoon. Scoop out onto floured surface, allow to cool. Sprinkle and add extra flour if too moist! You can double this batch, but don't make more than two batches in one pan. It's too hard to stir:)
I found some cookie cutters the kids will love.
