The grandkids came to visit the other day and it was a rainy one. We pondered what to do inside all day and the kids decided it would be fun to make playdough. This turned out to be a great quick recipe and the kids had fun playing all day long. There are so many different recipes out there but this was definitely a keeper. Have fun!
- 1-2 packets Kool-Aid
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 cup salt
- 2 tablespoons cream of tartar
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 cup boiling water
In a large bowl add all dry ingredients and mix well (salt, flour, cream of tartar, Kool-Aid). Add the oil and boiling water to the mixture and mix this with a large spoon until it becomes very firm. It should be cool enough to handle after a few minutes of stirring. Lay out some wax paper and flour for the last step. Use your hands and roll it in some more flour if it feels too sticky.
The Kool-Aid makes the playdough recipe smell really good (like taffy) but it probably doesn’t taste very good lol! Since it has salt in the recipe, be sure to wash hands and use some lotion to prevent dryness. It will last for a long time if refrigerated in a plastic bag.
