  1. This does not work. So annoying. I just wasted flour and baby oil. My kids are sad and I am frustrated. DO NOT MAKE,,,

  2. I’ve made this, and was petty upset, at first, as well, because I was extremely broke and used the last of my flour! But, then I decided to just add more oil, and it worked! I only added a little at a time, until I was happy with the constancy 🙂 My three year old played with it for days!

  3. I make this using 8 cups flour to 1/2 cup baby oil. My kids love it, but it is NOT like Play-Doh. It is more like that kinetic sand stuff (obviously a flour texture instead of a sand texture). You can squeeze it to make a lump of it, then squish it to crumble it again. We keep ours in a clear Rubbermaid-type tub with a lid – it lasts forever. The boys love to use their mini construction trucks in it. It can be messy but cleans up pretty easily and doesn’t stain. We use a paintbrush to get as much out of the toys as possible (archaelogist dig!) before giving the toys baths. Don’t let clumps go down the drain – it dries hard as a rock. Have fun!
