Valentine's Day Student Gifts

This year my students walked in on Valentine's Day and had these treats on their desk! They had a bag of jelly beans and homemade Play-doh in the shape of a heart. The kids loved their treats and it didn't break the bank. LOL

Here is the recipe I used for the homemade Play-doh:

*I doubled the recipe*

1 cup Salt

2 cups Flour

2 Tablespoons Cream of Tartar

2 Tablespoons Oil

2 cups Water

Red Food Coloring

2 Tablespoons of Cinnamon (for the smell)

I also sprinkled glitter into the mixture for a fun, sparkly twist!

Directions: Combine ingredients in a saucepan. Heat gently, stirring all the time. When the dough has a good, tough consistency, take it off the heat and allow to cool. When cool, break the dough into individual balls. Use a heart shaped cookie cutter and take the dough and form it into the cookie cutter.
