1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1/4 cup salt
3/4 cup water (if colored play dough is desired, add coloring to the water before measuring)
2 cups flour
Put all ingredients into a bowl.
Mix them together with your hands.
If the dough is too mushy to hold shape, add a little flour.
If the dough is too hard to mould, add a little water.
Store your play dough in a plastic bag.
Will last for weeks.
