Of course you can buy ready made dough for your kids, but here's a recipe that makes it really easy to do at home.  Think of this activity as Science 101: kids will love getting their hands in the mix and making something they can then enjoy playing with once the mixture is complete! Talk about how the dry flour and salt change as you add water and oil. Store the dough in plastic wrap to keep it pliable when not in use.

It's easy to make: mix together 1 cup of flour, 1/2 cup of salt, a few drops of vegetable oil and enough water to form a ball. Food coloring or a splash of bright tempera paint can be added.
