- 1 cup of water
- 1 tablespoon cooking oil

- half a cup of salt
- food colouring (optional)
Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix together.
Place in microwave, cook for 1 ½ minutes.
Stir and then put back in the microwave for another 2 minute or until the mixture in dough like.
Allow to cool then it is ready to play!
