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.
