Homemade Playdough

My grandma always made playdough when I visited her house. Here is a recipe I enjoyed making for my daughters--and now my grandchildren!

3 cups water
6 tablespoons oil
5 cups flour
1 cup salt
2 tablespoons alum
1-2 drops peppermint flavoring (for a delightful scent)
food coloring of your choice

In large saucepan, boil water and add oil. May also add food coloring at this time if you only desire one color. Remove from heat and add flour, salt, and alum. Mix well. When cool enough to work with hands, may divide dough for more colors. Work color in by kneading dough. Keeps fresh in refrigerator for several months. Enjoy!
