Valentines Playdough

This is my absolute favorite playdough recipe(I made it at the beginning of the school year for my daughters class and it is still perfect)
2 C Water
2 TBSP Vegetable Oil
1 C Salt
4 tsp. Cream of Tartar
2 C Flour
To Make it Valentines add:
Red  food coloring
2TBSP Glitter
1/4 C Heart Shaped Confetti

Dump all ingredients in pan on medium heat and stir until becomes a doughy consisitency.
Remove from heat and let cool in pan for 5 minutes.
Remove from pan onto a parchment paper lined counter and let sit for another 5 minutes.
It is still going to be quite warm at this point but you knead when it is warm enough to handle like bread dough.

Store it in an airtight container and it is ready for play.  I store it with Valentine cookie cutters I picked up at the dollar store!
