Favourite Playdough recipe

Families are always asking us for our playdough recipe. This makes a glouriously silky dough. I 'm not sure were we origanally got the recipe from as it's written in my hand on one of our recipe books.
It can be quite oily so best used on a table.
4 cups of flour
1 cult salt
8 tspns cream of tartar
10 Tbspn oil
4 cups boiling water
dye. (a slosh say 1/8 -1/4 cup kindergarten grade 2 litre bottle, probably less with concentrate)

Mix flour, salt, cream of tartar, oil and dye, then add the boiling water and stir vigourously till it's all mixed it. It should come away from the sides and be slightly tacky but not sticky on the fingers. Different dyes seem to yield different results as does the weather.
Keep in a sealed container when not in use.
