Start by mixing the dry ingredients including flour, salt, and cream of tartar. Mix well.

Add water and oil.

Add a few drops of food coloring to the mixture. Mix well.

Continue mixing until you get a uniform mixture. If you are not satisfied with the intensity of the color, continue adding food coloring.

Cook over medium heat for a few minutes. Stir constantly until it reaches a play dough consistency.

Remove from heat but be careful as it will still be hot. Set aside to cool.

Once cool, roll into balls and store in a ziplock bag or airtight container until needed (refrigerate).
