This was always my favourite "toy" when I was growing up. You can make it into shapes of all sorts of things. I had so much fun, tint it whatever colour you like. I usually had pink as it was my favourite colour.

Extremely easy and cheap to make! I wanted a more intense color, so I used acrylic paint instead of food coloring. I just added a little paint to the water, then mixed with remaining ingredients. It definitely made a more vibrant color than food coloring.
My kids really enjoyed making this with me today. Super easy. I did have to add a little more flour too because it was a little too gooey. Thanks for a fun recipe!!
We made this for my little niece and it turned out perfect. Very easy to prepare. We added turmeric spice as a natural coloring, and ended up with a bright yellow-colored dough. I'll bet you could try to infuse the water with beet juice for a magenta color too. Great homemade recipe, thank you!
