Step 3: Melt Crayons
Since we are using crayons, I would sugguest to use old vessel to make this playdoh.
1. Heat pan over medium flame, add oil and crayons into it.
2. Once the crayons completely melted, add in water and bring it to boil.
Step 4: Add APF and Mix
Once water started boiling, add dry ingredients and mix well with spatula immediately to avoid lump formation.
once the flour absorbed all water, transfer the dough into flat surface area. ( i used my cutting board)
Allow it to cool, until you can tolerate kneading.
Knead the dough for few minutes and let it completely cooled down.
Step 5: Store in Air Tight Container
once it cooled down, store the dough in air tigher container to prevent hardening.
