Homemade Play Dough

Martin Luther King Day and a day off from school. Rylie spent the day with me and for fun we made homemade Play Dough and made some cute thingies. The recipe is easy. 1 cup flour, 1 cup salt, 1 tbsp alum, 1 tsp vegetable oil, food coloring, vanilla flavoring (for nice smell) . Mix and add warm water until the right consistency. Knead it like crazy until smooth and voila! Something to have fun with that smells great. I used to do this with my own kids when they were little. The play dough can be air dried or stored in airtight container for another day.
