Homemade Playdough - DIY with easy ingredients
I use a little bit of food dye in my recipe and keep a closer eye on my toddler while he plays with it on a board and around our living room. It has never caused any staining (except on my fingers, which goes away), although he tried to smash a stickier batch on a table leg, which is slightly messy. But I generally don't have sticky batches any more as I add more flour and enjoy the smoother texture.
Its easy to do!
Mix about -
1 cup of flour, a 1/2 cup of water, 2 teaspoons of oil, and several drops of dye (put dye in with wet ingredients for most even color)
Mix and knead, with more kneading leading to smoother dough.
Adjust quantities as needed for consistency. Double recipe in separate bowls for larger quantities of multiple colors.
