Rollin' in the (Play) Dough

Some things are just better when you make them yourself. Play Dough is definitely one of them, in my opinion. Here is the recipe we use:

1 cup flour
1 cup water
1 tbs oil
1 tbs powdered alum
1/2 cup salt
2 tbs vanilla
food coloring (optional)

Mix all dry ingredients. Add oil and water. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until reaching the consistency of mashed potatoes. Remove from heat and add vanilla and food coloring. Divide into balls and work in color by kneading.

This play dough is super soft, lasts longer than store-bought (we made a batch 3 months ago and it is still good after almost daily use), and smells yummy-- bonus!
