Make Your Own Play Dough
In my quest to find activities to occupy my kids, I found this recipe that doesn't require odd ingredients... just stuff you have around the house!
Pour 1 C. flour, 1/2 C. salt, and 3 tabl. of vegetable oil into a medium bowl and stir with a wooden spoon. Add 1/3 C. water tinted with 17 drops of desired shade of food coloring. Knead dough with hands until it feels smooth. If the dough is crumbly, add more oil; if it’s sticky, add more flour. The dough can be stored in an airtight container in the frig for several weeks.
