You have to search far and wide to find a toy that’s simpler and promotes more creativity than playdough. And if your kids are like mine, your playdough dries out and the colors get mixed together until they resemble purple milk, you probably end up throwing a lot away. And if you’re like me, you think “I’m not paying another $6 for more teeny little tubs of that stuff!”
Enter the homemade version. But it’s not like all homemade playdough. It’s made with Kool-Aid, so it smells yummy and looks grrreeaat! And one recipe makes about three times the normal amount you’d buy in the store.
We made it this last weekend. It was just the thing we needed on a cold, dreary Saturday. Here’s how.
Assemble the following ingredients:
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup salt
- 1 package of Kool-Aid
- 3 teaspoons cream of tartar
- 1 tablespoon cooking oil
Holler at the kids, ’cause it’s ready to play! This cool blue color was Berry Blast or something like that. You know, blue Kool-Aid.
