What you need:
- 3 cups plain flour
- 1 cup salt
- 250ml (1 cup) water
- 60ml (1tbsp) vegetable oil
- Food colouring
Mix all the dry ingredients and add oil.
Add the food colouring to the water.
Slowly add the water until the desired consistency is reached.
Kneading the dough will help improve the texture.
Once your children have finished playing with it, roll it into a big ball and put in an airtight Tupperware container. Playdough should keep for 6 months.
