How to make it ?


1 cup of flour
1 cup of hot water
1/2 cup of salt
2 teaspoons of food
grade baking soda (or baking powder)
1 teaspoon of vegetable oil
A few drops of food colouring (this can be obtained from foods or spices, such as beetroot or turmeric).
Optional: a few drops of lavender oil to add fragrance (suitable for children aged 3 years and up).

Put the flour, salt and baking soda in a pan. Keep stirring while adding the water and oil, and heat until it thickens. When the dough begins to peel off the sides of the pan, remove it from the heat and when cool enough to handle, pick it up and knead it. Separate the dough into small pieces and add the colouring to each piece. Knead each piece until the colour is spread evenly throughout.

Storage instructions : Simply store them in airtight jars or food storage containers.
