I'm finally back for another addition of Crafty Tuesday! This project I did with little E a few week ago actually & I'm finally posting it for you all. I thought for sure I took pictures as we mixed it up but I can't seem to find them. At least I have a picture of the finished product for you. :)
This was really fun to make and smell! E is too little to really enjoy the fun of helping make it (have to use boiling water), but he definitely had a great time playing with the play dough for the first time. I've been making this play dough for about 13-14 yrs now. It is so much fun! I love that just by adding the Kool Aid® packets you get great colors and smells. The kids love it too! Plus unlike the store bought stuff it doesn't crumble and find a new home in your carpet so easy and it lasts a really long time. I keep it in Ziploc bags stored in the fridge.
Here is the recipe so you can go make some with your kids this week.
Kool Aid® Play Dough
- 2 pkgs. kool-aid®
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup salt
- 2 Tbsp oil
- 2 cups boiling water
- Combine flour, salt, kool-aid®, and oil and mix until water is ready, then add water (be very careful)
- Have an adult pour water and stir with spoon until cool enough for child to touch and mix thoroughly with hands. Then let child have the time of his/her life.
