Gluten-free playdoh

Posting this here to archive it for myself: Gluten-free play-doh, so Simone can eat it as she wishes. When she got a bite today, her eyes watered and she looked disgusted (a lot of salt!)...but at least there was no gluten reaction. :)
2 C rice flour
2 C Salt
1 T cream of tarter
2 T sunflower oil
1 C Water
food coloring

1. Mix the flour, salt, and cream of tartar in a saucepan.
2. Add oil and gradually blend in the water and food coloring.
3. Cook over moderate heat, stirring, until the mixture is stiff and leaves the sides of the pan clear.
4. Leave until cool enough to handle, then knead gently until smooth.

You can use beet juice from canned beets to turn it red, tumeric to turn it yellow, etc. Or the regular old food coloring, if your kids don't get crazy on dyes. :)
