2 drops food colouring or watercolour paint- optional

2 drops flavour scent (lemon, peppermint, vanilla) - optional

Ziploc bag or container for storage

Other ingredients you can add or substitute :

1 or 2 packets of jello or Kool aid

It will give colour and scent to your play dough.

Substitute the flour to gluten-free flour. See link for our gluten -free play dough.

Mix ingredients together, Then knead into a dough.

If the play dough is too DRY, sprinkle some water on top. Then knead it until soft. Repeat this if too sticky.

If the play dough is too STICKY, add a little flour to it. Knead until smooth and soft. Repeat this process if still sticky.

Play dough is ready!
