The short version of the recipe is simple enough, but if you feel like you need a step-by-step explanation with images, here it is.
We begin with collecting the ingredients. Here you can see the water, flour, salt and food coloring. All we need for this specific playdough recipe.
In the pan where you plan to cook the playdough, mix all ingredients. It should look something like this, depending on how much food coloring you want to use. Just pour it in there and mix together.
Start heating the mixture on medium heat, it’s important that we don’t burn it. After a minute or so it should look like this. A bit more doughy but nowhere near finished.
Now you will be able to see that the mixture changes quite rapidly. To make sure you don’t burn it you can lower the heat some. After quickly changing and when finished it should look like this. Remember that it’s a bit hot, but it cools rather quickly.
When cool enough, remove the finished playdough from the pan and start making your creations. My finished playdough looked like this.
Because of all the salt in the playdough, it will dry out your skin, so remember lotion after handling it.
Good luck with your own playdough cooking, I’m certain it will turn out great!
