  1. Sift the flour and cream of tartar into a large bowl, then mix in the salt.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the oil and food colouring with the boiling water.
  3. Pour the coloured mixture into the dry ingredients, then stir continuously until you get a sticky dough.
  4. After the dough has cooled, knead vigorously for a couple of minutes until it's no longer sticky.
  5. Roll into egg shapes and hide around your home!
