This is the first time I made the play dough. Going to use it this weekend with the kids. Lets see how it goes.
1/4 cup plain white wheat flour
1/8 cup salt
1 Tbsp yucca/tapioca starch
1 tsp oil
Mix all well together slowly with water. Add little by little water to get a dough, knead well, put into zipper bag and freeze until use.
I thought about natural colors and looked around and used things from the garden. So here is how I got these colors. I mixed the below ingredients to the basic recipe to get the colors.
Red/Orange – Achiote seeds from the garden, ground up.
Green – Hibiscus leaves blended with water and boiled to thicken up.
Black – Ashes
Yellow – turmeric
5. Blue/Purple – Fresh wild purple/blue flowers ground up with salt. I do not know this plant in my garden but it blooms a lot.
