    Default Kool-Aid playdough recipe

    I love this recipe as the playdough stays great for months if you keep it in the fridge in a ziploc bag. Smells great too!

    Ingredients
    1 cup flour
    1 tbsp vegetable oil
    1 cup cold water
    1/2 cup salt
    2 tsp. cream of tartar
    1 Pkg. Kool-Aid
    Directions
    Stir first 3 ingredients together. Add the remaining ingredients, cook for about 5 minutes over low heat until consistency of mashed potatoes. Turn out onto counter and knead for a couple of minutes until no longer sticky. Can be doubled. (I always double)

    We love playdough and I just made some yesterday for Evie to take to school. I have a no cook super easy recipe thought and we add magic to ours...sparkles...all kids love sparkly play dough!!

    Oh, and I don't know if it stains the clothes. I imagine it could if it got lodged in somewhere.


    Here's how I make it:

    1/2 c salt
    2.5 C Flour
    1-2 packs Kool Aid (I do 1)
    3 tbsp oil
    2 cups boiling water
    pinch of sparkles

    Mix dry ingredients. Add oil. Add water and knead. (I have a dough mixer so that's what I use) This play dough is colorful and has a wonderful fragrance. store in plastic bag or airtight container.

    Leslie, I have the same recipe and have playdough in all different colours and store each colour in clear rubbermaid container. The playdough usually lasts around 6-9 months before I have to make new since it gets rather sticky and dry from all the use.

    I got the recipe 2 years ago from Christine and Debra who run the OEYC playgroup at Elmwood Church in Wortley Village.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Love this play dough!! I make it all the time for the kids. It's nice to to double up the recipe too. My kids really enjoy having a large quantity of play dough to manipulate. Those tiny amounts in play-doh containers, just doesn't cut it.

    Off to go make some play dough now. My DD is going to love it
