Combine dry ingredients in bowl.
Stir in oil and water; if you're only making one color add the coloring in during this step (about 8 drops)
If making separate colors, divide the mixture into smaller bowls then add food coloring - I made 4 different colors with just one batch
Stir the color in until well combined
Knead with your hands until play dough consistency is reached.
Pair your dough with Play Dough Task Cards or other fun Play Dough Mats for added engagement!
Store in plastic bag or airtight container when not in use
