You can add food coloring to your pot mixture before cooking the ingredients.  You can also add food coloring after the clay is made and divide & color the clay different colors.

We opted to leave the clay white so that we can paint some of our creations once they are dry.  Rosie and Jewel have had lots of fun exploring with the clay and we have done some really neat art activities with it, too!
