My daughter loves to play with play dough. She molds, shapes, cuts, drills, and slices for hours. We make ice cream cones, animals cut out of cookie cutters, food, snakes, and more! This is a great recipe I found from Celiac Family. It reminds me of the recipe I used to make as a kid. It's really easy to make and the texture is perfect!
1 cup white rice flour
1/2 cup corn starch
1/2 cup salt
3 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 cup hot water
Food coloring, as desired
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a pan. Add hot water and vegetable oil. If you're making the whole batch one color then add the food coloring too. Stir everything together and cook on low heat until mixture forms a large mass. This should take 3 - 5 minutes. Take off the heat and when cool enough knead the play dough until smooth.
• If it's too sticky knead in a little cornstarch. If it's too dry put a little water on your hands and knead it in.
• If you're making different colors out of one batch wait and add the food coloring at the end. Knead the food coloring into the dough on a piece of parchment paper.
