1/4 cup salt 1 cup flour 1/4 cup water Have your child mix the flour and salt in a bowl then add water. Knead and squeeze the dough to make a clay consistency. You may need to add more water. Note: This dough doesn’t last as long as the cooked recipes. Divide into sections, then knead in food colouring. Kids love making the white playdough change colours. Add some glitter too for a bit of bling.
