Let's face it, everyone leaves the lid off the play doh canisters and it gets hard. Here's an easy recipe so you will never run out of playdoh again(and just a fraction of the cost!)
You will need
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 cup water
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
and to make it scented, one pack of a Kool Aid type drink mix you can omit this and just use food coloring
Mix flour and salt together. Add water. Add Koolaid or food coloring. When color is mixed well, add vegetable oil. Heat mixture on stove(medium), stirring constantly. When it comes together and starts to look like Playdoh, remove from heat. Place on surface and knead a few times. Store in airtight container.
