In a bowl, mix flour, salt and water. Slowly mix in warm water until a dough is formed.
Knead 5 minutes until dough is firm.
Make beads by rolling the dough into balls and poking with a straw (big holes) or toothpick (small holes).
Let dry 48 hours.
Paint with acrylic or tempra paints (acrylic covers better, but doesn't come out of clothes)
