Author Barefoot Homestead

Ingredients

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • a couple drops food coloring of choice to your liking, more color provides more intense color
  • a couple drops peppermint or other essential oil to your liking, more drops provide more intense scent

Instructions

  1. Mix together flour and salt in a bowl.

  2. Mix together water, food coloring, and essential oil in a separate bowl.

  3. Slowly mix liquid mixture into flour and salt mixture and stir. You may need to kneed with your hands to fully incorporate.

Recipe Notes

Note: If your playdough is too sticky, add a pinch more flour until it is the proper consistency. If it is too dry, add a few drops of water until it is the proper consistency.
 
Store in a sealed container, glass jar, etc. for days or even weeks of fun!
 
I use these amounts to make a single color, then repeat to create additional colors in separate bowls.
