Kool-Aid Play-doh Recipe
1 cup sifted flour
3Tablespoons oil (I used canola, but it doesn’t matter)
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup salt
1 package unsweetened Kool-Aid (We used grape, orange would be great for
A. Mix flour, oil, salt and Kool-Aid packet.
B. Add boiling water.
C. Stir together.
D. Knead mixture until it forms into a soft dough.
(This did not happen for Jackson and I, it was really wet! We added a little extra flour, still too wet…so I decided to cook the mixture over medium heat stirring constantly until it formed a ball! Then knead on table until smooth! IT WILL BE HOT! Wait until it cools enough so you can touch it! It turned out great and Jackson loved it!)
You will have an oil sheen to your hands when you play with this dough, this is the way it should be….Enjoy! Store in an airtight container, should last about a week.
