I love fun times with the granddaughter! Play-doh is one of our favorite activities. Miss H can be incredibly creative- as I have said repeatedly. This recipe is one I have made many times for my children as they grew up and also for my pre-k class I taught for 2 years. Not only is this colorful - but it smells good too.
Kool-aid Play Dough.
1 c. flour
1T. oil - I use vegetable oil
1 pkg. of unsweetened Kool-aid (for color and scent)
1/4 c. salt
2T. cream of tartar (optional, but I prefer it)
1 c. water
Mix dry ingredients then add water and oil. Stir 3 to 5 minutes on medium heat. When mixture forms a ball in pan, remove from heat and knead on table top until smooth. The dough will be pretty hot at first, so adult hands are necessary to knead until it cools a bit. Make sure to store this in an airtight container and in the fridge keeps a longer shelf life. It has the same consistency as store bought Play-doh.
We have had many rainy days this spring and this has been played with for countless hours in hopes that summer will soon arrive.
Happy rolling and shaping.
