Play Dough Making!

We made play dough this morning and loved it

Recipe:


4 Cups All Purpose Flour
4 Cups water
 8 teaspoons of Lemon Juice-I only had lime juice so I used that


1/4 cup vegetable oil2 tablespoons salt

Cinnamon if you want it to smell good!
food coloring -I used both gel and the normal kind and liked the gel better

First, mix all the ingredients except for the food coloring on medium high in a pot/pan on the stove. Keep stirring it until it turns to a play dough like substance, it takes about 20 minutes. Let it cool, divide it up and then use the food coloring to dye it. It turned out so much better then the store bought kind. Make sure you knead in the dye really well. I even combined a blue/red dye to make purple.

I used baking soda and dish soap and it is all gone.

It was surprisingly easy, and the dough is way better then the storebought kind.

 Is the purpose of the lemon juice for the scent or something?
