While searching for more easter ideas, I had come across a similar play doe carrot. So I thought I'd give it a try and make one of my own. The play doe was pretty simple to make. After the play doe was done, I took small pieces and shaped them into a carrot. I placed them in a small cellophane bag, tied it off, and added a Happy Easter tag. It's a great alternative than always giving candy! Of course if you don't feel up to making your own, you can always use store bought play doe!
Here's the recipe, give it a try!
1 cup flour
1 cup water
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/3 cup salt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
orange food coloring
Mix together all the ingredients, except the food coloring, in a 2 quart saucepan. Cook over low heat stirring. Once it begins to thicken, add food coloring. Continue stirring until the mixture is much thicker and begins to gather around the spoon. Remove mixture onto wax paper or plate to cool!
