Play With Dough

Stuck inside? Here’s a good way to keep the kids occupied for an hour or two. Take a couple of minutes to make colorful dough. Then let them create.

What you’ll need

  • ¼ cups Original Bisquick® mix
  • ¼ cup salt
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon food color

What to do

  • Stir Bisquick, salt and cream of tartar in 4-cup microwavable measuring cup until mixed; set aside. Mix water and food color in liquid measuring cup.
  • Stir a small amount of colored water at a time into dry mixture until all water is added. Microwave uncovered on High 1 minute. Scrape mixture from side of cup and stir.
  • Microwave uncovered 2 to 3 minutes longer, stirring every minute, until mixture almost forms a ball. Let dough stand uncovered about 3 minutes.
  • Remove dough from measuring cup, using spoon. Knead dough in your hands or on the counter about 1 minute or until smooth. (If dough is sticky, add 1 to 2 tablespoons Bisquick.)
  • Cool about 15 minutes. Use dough to make shapes and designs. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.
