With a new little one around the house and I was getting ready for vacation; I made some home made playdough. The kids had a blast and I was able to get things done. Here’s the recipe I use.
- 1 1/4 cup flour
- 1/4 cup salt
- 1 pkg unsweetened Kool-aid (just the dry koolaid)
- 1 cup of boiling water
- 1 1/2 tablespoon of vegetable oil
In a bowl, mix flour, salt and kool-aid
Stir in water and oil
Knead with hands for about 5 minutes.
You might need to add a little more flour or a tad bit mroe oil until you get the consistency you desire.
The first day the playdough is a little gooy but after that its great. It last a long time especially if you take very good care of it by putting it in a ziploc bag and/or an air tight tuberware.
It smells great and if the kids decide to try to eat it..it taste bad but won’t hurt them. =)
Use like regular playdough and have fun!
