I remember my mom making this paint for my brother, sister, and I when we were little. Memories of the kitchen table resurfaced when I came across this recipe last week. She once helped me make a map of the United States with this dough, using blue food coloring for the Mississippi.
It's more of a puffy paint consistency. It will harden when dry.
Mix equal parts flour, salt, water. Add food coloring.
Note to self * split the dough up before adding food coloring for multiple colors!
Painting the bathtub is the BEST idea ever!
