We are all about color... Obviously! But more and more we are trepedatious about the safety of the products our kids love, namely play dough and paint. Thanks to eco ike we've just come across this fantastic recipe for homemade play dough. Be sure to check out the link below for all natural (vegetable) food coloring.

1 cup flour
1 cup water
1/4 cup salt
1 Tablespoon oil (any type)
2 Tablespoons cream of tartar
1 Tablespoon peppermint extract (or cinnamon or vanilla)
1+ Tablespoon natural food coloring

(1.) In a pot, mix dry ingredients then stir in the wet ingredients while the burner is on medium heat.
(2.) Once it thickens a little, lower the heat and keep mixing until it looks almost solid and there are no gooey parts.
(3.) Dump out, let cool and wedge.
(4.) Keep in a glass or bpa-free airtight container.
