This play dough is easy to make and fun to use. Store the play dough covered in a container so it doesn’t dry out.
1 cup water
1 cup flour
1/3 cup salt
1 tablespoon citric acid/sour salt
1 tablespoon oil
Food coloring, a few drops till desired color is reached.
Place all the ingredients into a pot over medium heat. Stir constantly until it thickens and forms a large ball. Remove from pot and allow to cool a bit. Knead the play dough a few times until it is nice and soft.
You can make the batch above in one color and repeat for multiple colors, or divide the dough into pieces and knead in coloring. If you knead in the food coloring after making the dough, place the ball of play dough onto parchment paper and use gloves to prevent staining your hands and counters.
