Kool-Aid Play Dough

PLAY DOUGH! Most kids love it and the wonderful news—It is super simple to make in the convenience of your own home! There are several great homemade play-dough recipes and the one I like best is the Kool-Aid version. It only requires a few ingredients, about 10 minutes of your time, you don’t have to cook it over the stove, it’s non-toxic and it smells great.


The Recipe…


1 ½ Cups flour

¼ Cup salt

1 Pkg. unsweetened Kool-Aid

1 Cup boiling water

2 Tablespoons vegetable oil


1) In a medium-sized bowl mix together the flour, salt and dry Kool-aid.

2) Add the boiling water and oil. Stir until it starts to come together and then knead it with your hands for about 5 minutes. Add a little more flour if the dough seems too sticky. It will come together more as it cools.

This play-dough stores great in Ziploc bag or a plastic container with a good seal. I refrigerate mine and it will last for several months this way.
