Since this Moon Dough recipe is made with conditioner each set of Moon Dough smells amazing. We pick the conditioner by the scent because the color hasn't been important to the girls yet.
If you want a different color than what is available, simply add in a few drops of food coloring. These two sets of Moon Dough were made with pink and blue. As you can see the color lightens a lot so it looks almost white and green. If the girls had wanted a stonger color, it would be easy to add in food coloring during the mixing stage.
