Things You'll Need

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups salt
  • Bowl
  • Spoon
  • Red food coloring
  • Green food coloring
  • Waxed paper

It is a great feeling to make your friend and family laugh. One way to really get your loved ones rolling in their seats is to mischievously leave a fake poop lying around. Once your friends realize that the poop is just pretend, they will think it is completely hilarious.

Combine the flour, water and salt into a bowl.

Stir the mixture well with a spoon.

Add in five drops each of red and green food coloring. Since red and green are complementary colors, they will create brown when they are combined equally.


Stir the mixture well to incorporate the food coloring throughout the dough.


Place the dough onto a sheet of waxed paper.

Use your hands to roll the dough out into an oval-shaped log.


Allow the dough roll to air-dry completely. As it dries, the dough will crack slightly, which will make it resemble feces even more.


Once dry, you can fake out your friends and family with the pretend poop.
