Easy Play Dough

Play Dough
This is a super easy recipe that will save you alot of money.

You will need
1 cup cornstarch
1 1/4 cup water
(food coloring, if you like)

In a medium-size saucepan, stir together baking soda, cornstarch and water

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it resembles mashed potatoes. Cover with a damp cloth and allow it to cool.

Knead the dough. Add food color at this point. Knead to mix in food color.

Keep in a zip style bag between uses.

Will the food color stain?

Yes it will! You can use gloves to knead in the color if you like. One you knead it is there is no need to worry. Kneading it is the part taht is messy. I usually wipe off my counter top with bleach and it removes all the color from the counter.

Thanks for sharing this recipe! Somewhere along the way, I picked up the tip to use unsweetened kool-aid powder to color the dough. It doesn't stain like the food coloring, and it makes a nice scent, too!
