Little Helping Hands

Allow kids to choose food coloring and mix it into the dough themselves. You might want to do the initial mixing yourself because food coloring stains. Keep this in mind and have the kids wear old clothes or smocks. Kids will get a kick out of kneading the dough until it is mixed completely.
