Homemade Playdough


1 c. cold water
1 c. salt
2 tsp vegetable oil
food coloring
3 c. flour
2 tbsp cornstarch


1. In a bowl, mix water, salt, oil and enough food coloring to make a bright color.
2. Gradually add flour and cornstarch until the mixture reaches the consistency of bread dough.
3. Store covered.

****This makes a LARGE batch of I like to 1/2 the recipe for each color. The easiest way to do this is to use the full amount for water, salt, and oil...then split into a second bowl. Add food coloring...and then slowly add flour/cornstarch until its like bread dough.****
