Too much candy? Homemade Play-dough for Valentine's Day instead!

I saw this on MoneySavingMom - a blog I follow.  I thought it was a great idea - give play-do instead of more sugar on Valentine's Day! 

Simple Cooked Play Dough

3 cups of flour

1 1/2 cups of salt

3 cups of water

2 Tablespoons vegetable oil

1 Tablespoons cream of tarter

Red food coloring

Cook the ingredients over medium heat until dough pulls from the sides of pan and no longer looks shiny.

Allow to cool before storing in an airtight container or wrapping in individual bags (you can find cute bags at your local craft store or Dollar Store). If you use bags, be sure to tie bags very securely with ribbon or string so that the play dough does not dry out. Makes about 10 bags.
