1 tablespoon of cornstarch
1 teaspoon of vegetable oil
food coloring of your choice
Here's how to make it:

|help them out with the kneading part|
Use and air tight container or a blastic bag to store
I use old empty playdough containers to store the homemade stuff,
this recipe fills up two of these
* Tips: Remember to pour in the flour little by little, if you live in a humid place you will most likely need a bit more flour than I did. I only used about 3/4 cup of flour because of the dry environment.
Also, if you want to make more than one color divide your water, oil and salt mixture, add your different food colors and add the flour to the different bowls.
Thanks again to Jackie Allen for this fun recipe!
