gingerbread playdough

1 c. flour
1/2 c. salt
1 c. water
1 T. oil
2 tsp. cream of tartar

Mix flour, salt, cream of tartar in a heavy saucepan. Combine water and oil and slowly pour into flour mixture. Stir constantly and cook over a medium heat. Pour in cinnamon until the playdough turns the shade of brown that you want. Cook and stir until it forms a ball and pulls away from the sides of the pan. Turn out onto wax paper. After it cools a little, keep in a Ziploc bag.

My kids at school love this playdough. I have to constantly remind that although it smells really yummy, you can't eat it!!
