Play-doh Made with Kool-Aid (Top play dough recipe)

Play-doh Made with Kool-Aid
Second time (even better)

We’ve  tried making Kool-Aid play dough before and it was neat, but this time 
was even better.  We found a recipe that was so smooth it reminded me on the real
Play-Doh you buy in the store.  We got our recipe from around town sue a link we got off of Lesson Pathways.

 Play-doh Made with Kool-Aid
  • 2 c. flour
  • 2 c. water
  • 1 pkg. (.17 oz.) unsweetened kool-aid mix: orange, berry, lime are best (do not use grape – it turns out sort of gray in color)
  • 2 tsp. cream of tartar (you can substitue 1/4 tsp of lemon juice or white vinegar for each 1/8 tsp of cream of tartar. Be aware if you use vinegar, the play-doh will have a vinegar smell)
  • 1/2 c. salt
  • 2 tsp. oil
Add Kool-Aid to water in pan. Add remaining ingredients and stir together. Cook over medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring constantly. Play dough is done when color deepens and it comes together in a ball. Turn onto a plate to cool and cover tightly to store. Store in zip-loc bag.

    This looks great and luckily edible (my kids are a tad young) but can’t wait til they are old enough to play with play-dough! Found your blog via Sweet Saturday hop and would love follow-back. Take care! – Jen @ http://experimentmom.blogspot.com/

      There nothing in it that wouldn’t be edible, but it wouldn’t taste very good. But it does smell very yummy!
