All-Natural Play Clay

Add color to this no-cook dough using ingredients from your kitchen, and you won't have to worry if some ends up in your toddler's mouth (though the taste probably won't be to her liking).

What you'll need

  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/8 cup salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • NATURAL DYE
  • BROWN: 3/8 cup plus one tablespoon hot water and 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • FUCHSIA: 3/8 cup hot beet juice (we used the liquid from a 15-ounce can of beets)
  • ORANGE: 3/8 cup hot water and 1 tablespoon paprika
  • YELLOW: 3/8 cup hot water and 1 teaspoon turmeric

How to make it

  1. In a medium-size bowl, combine the flour and salt. Pour in the oil and your chosen natural dye, and stir well.

  2. All-Natural Play Clay - Step 2

    Knead the dough on a floured surface for a few minutes. If the clay is too soft, add a bit more flour.

  3. Store the clay in airtight containers in the refrigerator.
