Homemade Play Dough

Mix 1 cup salt

DSCF6060

with 2 tsp vegetable, cannola, or safflower oil

DSCF6061

and 1 cup water

DSCF6062

Mix well.

In another bowl, mix 3 cups flour

DSCF6065

with 2 tablespoons corn starch.

DSCF6066

Mix well.

DSCF6067

Add to the salt water mixture.  It should feel like too-dry dough, but still come together.

Separate into however many colors you want.  Mix food coloring with a little bit of water (I use powdered food coloring).  Don’t let the 1-year-old hold the blue food coloring.

and add to the dough, kneading until thoroughly mixed.  (This extra water should change the consistency so that it no longer feels “too dry” but has a cool, rubbery texture.)
