Simply follow the recipe for making the dough. It's quick and easy - and it will save you some pennies too. You just need to mix the ingredients together and knead the mixture into a ball. Try making different-coloured dough by using different food colouring. Keep the dough in an airtight bag or container and it should last for about a week.
How to extend the magic
You're now ready to let your child get creative and experiment with the feel of the dough. They'll love the texture and enjoy squidging their fingers into it. Have a go at making a snail - just roll a piece of dough into a spiral to create the shell and then fix a small piece of dough underneath for its body. Simple flowers like daisies are easy to make too - just roll a small ball of dough for the centre, and some oval shapes for each petal.
