1/2 cup oil
about 1/4 cup tempera paint
2 cups salt
4-5 cups all-purpose flour

Rice Flour Play Dough Created By: Jennifer D.
A wheat-free, gluten-free alternative for kids with wheat or gluten allergies.
1 1/4 cups rice flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tsp cream of tartar (which is not a dairy product)
1 cup water
1 Tbsp oil
food coloring <1/4 tsp vanilla extract and/or sparkles (optional)>
Mix flour, salt, and cream of tartar in a large pot. Add water and oil. Add food coloring to the water to make colored play dough.
Cook over medium heat until the mixture pulls away from the sides of the pan (about 5 minutes), stirring constantly.
<Add vanilla extract (for smell, not taste).> Mix thoroughly. Put play dough on a clean surface. When cool enough to handle, knead lightly. Store in an airtight container.
<Add sparkles during the hand-mixing time for sparkly play dough.>
