HOMEMADE PLAY DOUGH
There are a million recipes for homemade play dough, but this is one of the easiest. (Edited to add: ...but there are compelling arguments in the comments for using oil and cream of tartar. Be sure to read the tips there.)

1 cup salt
1/2 cup flour
Mix all ingredients in a pot and stir over low heat until dough forms. Let cool, and store in an airtight bag.
