Keep the kids entertained with this fun holiday twist on playdough. They’ll love the gooey mess, while you enjoy the fresh peppermint scent!
Make two half batches, one red and one white.
Mix water, salt, cream of tartar, and food coloring. Cook on medium-low heat, stirring regularly until mixture is hot. Add oil. Stir in flour a cup at a time, stirring in between each addition. Mix until playdough pulls away from pan and is no longer sticky (pinch it between your fingers to test). Dump dough on counter, let cool a bit, then knead.
After it cools knead some glitter and peppermint oil into the dough. This is an optional step but adds some fun to the project.
