What you need
2 cups of plain four
1 cup of salt
3/4 of a cup of cold water
1 Tbsp of vegetable oil
5 or so drops of peppermint extract (depending on how strong you want the smell to be)
Red food coloring
What to do
1. In a bowl, combine the flour and salt then add the other ingredients and mix well.
2.Kneed until the dough is formed. If it is too sticky, add more flour. If it is too dry and flakey, add a bit more water. While you are playing with it, it may get a little flakey. Just wet the tip of your finger and kneed the dough. That should fix it :)
3. Split the dough in half and in another bowl, mix half the dough with the red coloring. We had to use quite a bit to get the dough red enough.
4. Then play away!!! You can use cookie cutters, your fingers, spoons, forks and all sorts of different things to play in the dough. We used Christmas and holiday stamps!!!
