You can keep your dough to use again my wrapping it in some cling wrap and putting it in the fridge. Also if you don’t have lots of different colours of food colouring, remember that you can mix, for this we only had pink, blue and yellow, so we mixed yellow and blue to make green and blue and pink to make purple.

I hope you all have as much fun making and playing with your playdough as we did!
