  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • 1 tablespoon of oil
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 2 drops liquid food colouring - any colour of your choosing


  1. Mix the flour and salt together in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add the cold water, oil and drops of food colouring and mix together.
  3. When your ingredients are well mixed, take them out of your bowl and place your dough onto a flat surface, such as grease proof paper.
  4. Knead vigorously for a few minutes, until your dough feels like play dough and all of the stickiness has gone.

What is kneading? This is when you press, massage, squeeze and fold your dough.


  • If your dough is too wet, add a little extra flour and carry on kneading.
  • If your dough is too dry and crumbly, add an extra drop of cold water and carry on kneading.
  • Make sure you add any extra ingredients a little bit at a time.
