SD09 Countdown Day 2 ~Make Red Playdough

I didn't get a pic of the playdough in action but here's the recipe I used:

2 cups white flour
1 cup salt
2 cups of water
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
Red food coloring

Begin to heat the water and oil in a medium sized pot on low heat. Slowly stir in the flour and salt. Stir until the dough pulls away from the edges on the pot. Pour the dough out onto a cutting board or cookie sheet. It will be hot! Knead until firm. Work in the food coloring until you reach your desired shade of red.

Last month we made a delicious-smelling chocolate playdough. Try it!
