Make Your Own Play Dough

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.
Pin It!

Just an can add a pack of unsweatened koolaid for the coloring. Each flavor has a different consistency, it smells yummy, and is fun for the kiddos to make. I usually use really hot water, flour, salt and oil..just guess my way through!

I need to try this! I'm tired of buying new playdough every time it gets left out to dry. :(
