Kool Aid Play Dough

  • 1 c flour
  • 1/4 c salt
  • 2 T Cream of Tartar
  • 1 c warm water
  • 1 T oil
  • 2 packages Kool-Aid (I choose flavor based on the colors I want)

  1. In a medium sauce pan, add all ingredients and mix together thoroughly.
  2. Cook on medium heat while stirring constantly.
  3. Your dough will begin to form and change consistency.
  4. When the dough has changed all the way through (just takes a couple minutes), remove from heat.
  5. Knead for about 30 seconds.
  6. Store in an airtight container.  Play Dough keeps a few weeks.

My helper measuring out the flour

Mix ingredients well in sauce pan (Lime flavor)

When dough changes consistency, remove from heat (Orange flavor)

Knead for about 30 seconds 

Clean up your helper and cooking station! :)
So, although this isn't technically a "food", it still qualifies for the blog because I actually have a recipe for it!  This is the best play dough recipe I have found yet.  It smells good and most importantly has a smooth texture.  I made this for years when Emma was little and now again that Owen is a toddler.  We made 4 batches in less than half an hour from start to clean up, and as you can see from the picture, Owen wasn't exactly helping things along :)
