Peppermint Sparkle Playdough
2 C flour
2 T oil ( I used olive oil)
1/2 C salt (regular old iodized salt)
2 T cream of tartar
up to 2 C boiling water ( I put in 1 1/2 C at first and then added a bit more as needed. I did not use the full 2 C)
1 tsp. Peppermint extract (add more if you think you need more)
Mix flour, salt, cream of tartar, and oil in a large mixing bowl. Add the boiling water and peppermint. Stir continuously until it becomes a sticky, combined dough. Allow it to cool, then knead until stickiness is gone. During the kneading, add in the glitter. I added some, kneaded a bit, added some more, and kneaded some more until I was happy with the glitter content. :) Store in an airtight container when your children are finished thoroughly enjoying themselves!

I've never made homemade playdough before, and had a great first experience! I won't use any other recipe...why change when you've found a winner, right?!
