Makes 1 coloured ball

Prep 10 minutes

What do I need:

  1. 8 tbsp plain flour

  2. 2 tbsp table salt

  3. 60ml warm water

  4. food colouring

  5. 1 tbsp vegetable oil 

How to make:

  1. Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl mix together the water, a few drops of food colouring and the oil.

  2. Pour the coloured water into the flour mix and bring together with a spoon.

  3. Dust a work surface with a little flour and turn out the dough. Knead together for a few minutes to form a smooth, pliable dough. If you want a more intense colour you can work in a few extra drops of food colouring.

  4. Store in a plastic sandwich bag (squeeze out the air) in the fridge to keep it fresh. You can make a batch of colours and give away as kids’ party bag favours or hold a playdough party for your child’s next birthday.
