Play Dough

Play Dough
(to be played with not eaten)

1 C. flour
1/2 C. salt
1 tbsp. oil
1 tbsp. alum
1 C. boiling water
food coloring

Bring water to boil. Remove from heat. Add food coloring and remainder of ingredients. Begin stirring w/spoon, eventually knead with hands.

*I wait and put the food coloring in after the play dough is done. I divide it into 4-5 pieces, make a cave in each piece, drop some food coloring in each, and let the kiddos knead in the color and create their own.
I have been able to store it for a few months in Ziploc bags.
