Mix all together: 1 cup salt, 1 cup flour, 1 Tbsp. salad oil (veg.oil). Add water (a little at a time) and mix until it forms a dough like consistency. If too dry, add more water. Put a few drops of food coloring to get desired color. Store in an airtight container. Use like regular play dough.
I use this recipe and add one packet of generic Kool Aid drink mix. It does not stain the hands, puts off a fruity smell and the colors are vibrant.
Thanks to you both, Shirley & Erica! I run a monthly "Family Art" day at a local arts center. I've been running out of ideas and this is perfect. The center is a non-profit, so I want to be able to keep costs down but still allow families to have fun and take projects home with them. I will definitely try the Kool-Aid because kids love vibrant colors. Thanks again!
