DIY Playdough

A Mama's Cup friend and reader just sent in this terrific recipe for homemade Playdough! It sounds like a fun project for a rainy afternoon. She even threw in a recommendation for all natural food coloring by India Tree. Thanks Amy!

1 cup flour
1 cup water
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon powdered alum
1/2 cup salt
2 tablespoon vanilla
food coloring

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.
