This kool-aid play doh is great. My kids adore playing with play doh, I mean what kid doesn't. This is colourful, smells great, is squishy and fun. It's great that I know all the ingredients in it, and they're all safe for consumption, so if my little guy who loves to put EVERYTHING in his mouth decides to have a taste test, I know he's not going to get sick. The only downside to this is that it has to be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. I hate giving up any fridge space to non-edible items. Our fridge is always overflowing with food and we need all the space we can get. It's not too bad though, I found small snap containers at the dollar store and I keep this at the back of my fridge. The recipe I used makes a lot of play doh and I even halved the recipe. Here's the recipe I used:
What You Need:
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup salt
1 pkg.(6 g) Kool-Aid Unsweetened Drink Mix, any flavour
1 Tbsp. Cream of tartar
1 cup boiling water
1 1/2 Tbsp. oil
wax or parchment paper
small airtight containers - I got mine at the dollar store
MIX first 4 ingredients in large bowl. Add boiling water and oil; stir with fork 3 to 4 min. or until cooled, then mix with hands until well blended.
PLACE on waxed or parchment paper; knead until no longer sticky, adding additional flour 1 tsp. at a time if necessary.
How to Store:
Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
Repeat above process for each colour of kool-aid play doh you want to make.
