1. Mix all the ingredients together in a saucepan. Be careful with the dye as some concentrated dyes as some are extremely strong.
2. Adult: cook on medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes. Stirring constantly until the mixture becomes stiff. Store the dough in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It will last for quite a while and has the consistency of commercially prepared play dough.
If you need addition colour it can be worked in to the dough.
