  • here is one recipe:
    Alum Playdough

    2 cups flour
    1 cup salt
    2 tablespoons alum
    1 cup water
    2 tablespoons oil
    liquid food coloring

    Pour dry ingredients into large pan. Stir together to mix. Stir oil and food coloring into the water. Pour liquid into the dry ingredients while mixing, squeezing and kneading the playdough. If too sticky, add more flour. Keeps best in the fridge.

  • Rubbery Playdough
    2 cups baking soda
    1 1/2 cups water
    1 cup cornstarch
    Mix with a fork until smooth. Boil over medium heat until thick. Spoon onto plate or wax paper
    4 cups flour
    1/4 cup powdered tempera
    1/4 cup salt
    1 1/2 cups water
    1 tablespoon oil
    Mix together flour, powdered paint and salt. Mix water and oil, and food coloring if desired. Gradually stir the water and oil mix into the flour mix. Knead the playdough as you add the liquid. Add more water if too stiff, more flour if sticky.
