In need of some rainy day entertainment for your little ones? Whip up this easy-to-make play dough.
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup cold water
- 1 cup salt
- 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
- 2 tsp. vegetable oil
- Food coloring (natural food coloring are great to use, but standard food coloring works, too)
- In a large bowl, mix water, salt and oil until combined. Add food coloring one drop at a time, mix and repeat until desired color is achieved. The brighter and darker the color, the brighter and darker the play dough color will be.
- In a medium bowl, mix flour and cornstarch. Add flour mix to liquid a little at a time, stirring to combine until dough-like consistency is achieved.
- After use, dough may be stored in an air-tight container for future use.
