Oatmeal play dough

Oatmeal play dough is easy for children to help measure and make. This play dough will keep children engaged and help them become creative.
The oatmeal gives a unique lovely texture.

You will need...
1 cup flour
2 cups oats
1 cup water
food colouring

Mix the dry ingredients and gradually add water to make a smooth dough.

Separate it into balls and add a little bit of food colouring and mix. The play dough stores well for about 3 to 4 days in a ziploc bag.
