Do your kids not let you get anything done? Or do you feel like you have to cater to them when they are home all day?

Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and add the oil and water mixture to it, stirring it in. Cook over medium heat - ** stirring constantly!** Continue stirring with your wooden spoon until the dough thickens and begins to form into a ball. Remove from the heat and spoon it out onto parchment paper on the countertop. Allow it to cool slightly and then knead it until it’s smooth. Divide the dough into as many balls as you’d like in different colours. Add just a few (5-7) drops of food colouring to start and knead it into the still-warm dough. Add more drops to deepen the colour as desired, but knead between each addition as the colour will deepen as it merges into the dough with kneading. Alternatively, if you are concerned about staining, you can put the dough balls into separate quart-sized freezer bags to add the colouring to each one in the bags. Then knead the dough IN the bag until the colour is fully merged. There are also amazing colours you can make using natural ingredients like coffee, purple cabbage, matcha green tea powder and turmeric! But I recommend looking up recipes for these as there are some cautionary (potential mess!) details! But they’re fun and super cool, too, so I strongly recommend them.
