Kool-Aid Play Dough

I found this awesome play dough recipe over at Heidi’s Recipes a few weeks ago.  Now that we’re on house arrest and have PLENTY of spare time on our hands, I was able to whip up a batch.


This recipe was REALLY easy!  I’m talking 10-month-old-hanging-on-your-legs-because-she’s-not-taking-a-nap easy!

Trenton loved playing with the play dough.  His favorite thing to do was to cut out shapes, and then put them back in the holes – like a puzzle!  Charlotte wanted to be up at the table too.  The only thing she was interested in though was trying to eat the play dough!  I have to give it to her – the stuff did smell pretty good!



Kool-Aid Play Dough

1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 package Kool-Aid (.13 ounce, any flavor)
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 cup water
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil

Mix dry ingredients (flour, salt, cream of tartar, and Kool-Aid powder) together in a saucepan.

Add water and oil.

Stir the mixture together over medium heat until it thickens and a ball begins to form.  Turn off heat.

Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead, adding flour to hands and surface as needed.

Cool dough completely and store in a zip-lock bag or other air-tight container.
