Play dough boys

This very easy homemade play dough can last up to six months. Keep in a sealed bag or container. If dough starts to dry out, knead in some water.


  • 1 cup water
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2-4 tbsp vegetable (corn) oil
  • 1 1/2 cups salt
  • food colouring


  1. Pour water into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add food colouring; stir well.
  3. Add flour and salt and stir, starting to combine.
  4. Add oil and stir. If the mix seems dry, add a little more oil. Knead the ingredients together until a soft dough is formed.
