Homemade Koolaid Playdough

This is my all-time favorite recipe for playdough. I even like it better than store bought Playdough. The texture is awesome - it isn't crumbly like Playdough and is very easy for little hands to manipulate. It also smells so yummy!!! The Kool-aid packets give beautiful, vibrant colors. When the colors get mixed up, it doesn't turn a "dismal gray". For playdough pictured, I used pink lemonade & grape Koolaid. The recipe is as follows:
1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup salt
2 pkgs. unsweetened Kool-aid
1 cup boiling water
1 1/2 tbl. oil

1. Mix flour, salt, Kool-aid, and oil until blended.
2. Add boiling water, mix with spoon until cool enough to knead.
3. Continue kneading until color is blended.
4. Store in air tight bag or container in the refrigerator (I have always stored in fridge).

I found a box of "101 Wilton Cookie Cutters" at Goodwill which the boys have loved using!!!

I love your blog. I have a quick question about your play doh recipe. Does the kool aid color not come off on their hands?
Thanks so much!

I have not had any trouble with colors coming off and I have used most of the flavors. :) Thanks for the compliment.
