Alum Play Dough

I'm told this is one of the best homemade playdoughs around. Even though it will air dry overnight, to keep it pliable for a couple of months all you have to do is keep it in an airtight container when you aren't playing with it. No refrigeration needed with this one.

Ingredients:

3 teaspoons alum (available in the grocery)
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 cup boiling water
2 teaspoons vegetable oil

Directions:

1. Combine the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl.

2. Add the boiling water and the oil.

3. Mix thoroughly.

4. Add this point you can add tempera paints to create a desired color.

Model the dough and let it air dry overnight or store unused dough in an airtight container.
