So I planned to make four batches, do each one a different color, then divide them so each child got some of each. Trouble was I had a little helper, was a little distracted, read one of the amounts wrong... and ended up making four double batches. It worked out being a nice amount, so a good little mistake.
Here are some shots of the process, and the recipe is at the end, if you want it.

This recipe is the one in the cookbook my mom made for me when I moved out, with all the familiar recipes that she made when we were growing up. After my own recipe binder, it's still the one I use the most often.
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup salt
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp oil
(1 tsp alum - optional)
a few drops of food colouring
Mix it all up, add more flour if it's too stick. Store in the fridge.
