Make Your Own Playdough

This is one of the simplest Playdough recipes ever!!! Enjoy!!!:):) I made Playdough from flour water and salt. I found a similar recipe online, that's how I got the idea. I worked by myself on this project. And my goal stayed the same, make AWESOME Playdough!!!:):):) I made the Playdough in my kitchen. When I was younger I used to always play with Playdough. But I didn't know you could make your own dirt cheap!!! I'm so excited!!! My biggest challenge was trying to keep the food coloring off my clothes, sadly I couldn't. If I were to make this Playdough again I would make a bigger batch of it. I was most proud of the texture of the Playdough. It is the same exact texture as real Playdough, Yipee!!!:):):):)

Step 1: Gather Materials

These are the materials you will need to make your Playdough. 1 cup of flour 1/2 cup of salt 1/2 cup of water Opt. Food coloring

Step 2: Mixing

Mix all of the ingredients together, add as much food coloring as you would like.

Step 3: Refrigerate

Once you are done mixing the ingredients together for a while, take your Playdough out of the bowl and place it on some wax paper. Wrap the wax paper around your Playdough tightly and refrigerate to keep fresh!!!:):):):) Take it out of the refrigerator whenever you would like to play with it, reuse it many times!!

    I've used this very recipe before, but never using the neon food coloring, I have to say it turned out lovely! Great instructable!
