You Asked For It; Kool-Aid Playdough Recipe

I've had a few requests for the recipe to make Kool-Aid playdough.

This is so easy and inexpensive to make. You won't believe it!
(I took this recipe from About.com)


This makes an edible, fruit-scented playdough.
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 15 mins.

What You Need:

  • 1 c flour, sifted
  • 1/2 c salt
  • 3 T cooking oil
  • 1 pkg Koolaid (unsweet)
  • 1 c boiling water

Here's How:

  1. Mix together flour, salt, oil, and Kool-aid.
  2. Add the cup of boiling water. Mix well.
  3. Knead the mixture until it forms a soft dough.
  4. Have fun!
  5. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

Tips:

  1. Any other unsweetened, powdered drink mix may be substituted.
  2. Expect colored hands :-)
  3. Non-toxic... could be eaten, but won't taste very good. 
* I don't put my playdough in the fridge. It keeps perfectly well in a Tupperware container at room temp.

Hope you have fun making this with your kiddos. I would love to see your pics. :)
