Play Dough Recipe

Today Gavin had a playdate with his good friend Coleman. We made play dough and this is the best recipe I have found. It's not sticky, it doesn't require any strange ingredients, and it smells so yummy!

Kool-Aid Play Dough

1 1/4 c. flour
1/4 c. salt
1 package unsweetened Kool-Aid
1 c. boiling water
1 1/2 T oil

Mix all together in a large bowl. Let cool. Store play dough in a tupperware or ziplock bag.

I'll put in a plug for the play dough too! Sara made it with Erika a few months ago and it is great! I usually stay away from play dough cause I can't stand to clean it up, but this is much better! Glad to have the recipe now.

Actually, it's not the same. The one we made when Sara came was made with Jello and it was really sticky. I kept adding more flour and it just didn't work. This is much better.

Why are you making play dough when you're due in like 12 hours? You're making the rest of us look bad. Thanks for the recipe!
