Salt Dough

Click here for original recipe

What you need:
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 tablespoon oil
food coloring (optional)

  • Directions: Combine salt and flour. Add oil and enough water to give the mixture a claylike consistency. Add more water a little at a time until the mixture is pliable but not sticky. Knead slightly. If you wish to color dough, add food coloring to the water before adding the water to the salt and flour. Keep the dough in an airtight container.
    *I estimate that it took about a 1/4 cup of water, but add slowly.  This play dough is just as fun as the store bought kind and doesn't seem to dry out.  If you are planning on making different colors, you might try mixing the flour and salt and then separating it in thirds.
