The girls and I love to make our own playdough. And recently McCormick's came out with Neon colored food coloring. (Is that redundant?) Anyhoo, I thought I would share the best playdough recipe with you guys. It's my mother in law's who teaches preschool.
1 tbsp of alum
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 cup water
2 tbsp of oil
food coloring of your choice
Microwave the water, oil and coloring until boiling, about 1.5 min in my micro. Add to already mixed dry ingredients. Mix and knead thoroughly--use a spoon at first, it's hot as the dickens. Cool completely before storing in ziplock bag. It will last forever as long as you keep it stored correctly.
Voila! Also, I added vanilla extract this time and boy did it smell like pruty purkle playdough.
