Microwave Play Dough in a Jar

I belong to the group Gift in a Jar and they recently posted this recipe. I thought it would be fun to share it with you.

Microwave Play Dough in a Jar

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup salt
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
For fruit flavored: use 1 or 2 envelopes unsweetened flavored drink mix
For chocolate flavored: replace flour with cocoa powder
Use a 1-quart, wide-mouth canning jar.
Combine flour, salt, cream of tartar, and pick the flavor you want. Pour the mixture into the jar, packing firmly. Seal and decorate jar, adding cookie cutters, and attach a gift tag with the following instructions:

Microwave Play Dough:
2 cups water
2 tablespoons baby oil
Pour jar contents into a large bowl. Add the water and baby oil and mix well
If doing this with a child, be sure to supervise. Place mixture into microwave for about 4 minutes, stopping every 40 seconds or so to stir. Stir until a ball forms, then return to microwave until you have completed the 4 minutes time. Let cool.
Store in refrigerator or in an airtight container.
NOTE: Name the dough on the gift tag according to the flavor you use; chocolate microwave play dough, strawberry microwave play dough, etc.
