Best Playdough Recipe Ever

Monday, September 13, 2010 |
My nephew had a birthday this weekend, and I wanted to make him something again.  Last year I painted him a picture of a car with his name on the bumper (he is obsessed with cars!)

I can't believe a year has gone by already.  This year I wanted to make him something again, but not as time consuming.

So I made him playdough!

When I first moved into this neighbourhood, one of the neighbours came over and gave us some homemade playdough, and the recipe to go along with it.  I LOVE this recipe!  Especially the fact that it involves Kool-aid, and makes it smell so good!

Here is what you need:

1 cup white flour
1/4 cup salt
2 tsp cream of tarter
1 cup water
1 tbsp oil
1pkg Kool-aid

1.  First mix four, salt, cream of tarter, and kool-aid in a medium pot.

2.  Add water and oil.

3.  Turn on medium heat.

4.  Cook and stir, until mixture forms a ball.

5.  Take out and knead dough on lightly floured surface.

6.  Store in (CUTE) airtight containers.


p.s.  Smell the playdough, it is wonderful!!!  So good that I had to save a little and make myself a glass!

We LOVE to make play dough in our house! Keeps Miss 3 & Mr 7 occupied for quite a while. Even Mr 14 joins in at times. And so do I - never to old to play with it! My recipe is slightly different (we don't have Kool-Aid in Australia), using food colouring instead. The rest looks the same from memory. And I cook mine in 30 second bursts in the microwave oven.

The recipe calls for food colouring, but you can substitute kool-aid for the amazing smell!! I love the feel of this playdough, it's so moist!

Coloring with KoolAid! What a delicious idea.

Using kool-aid is such a genius idea! I love the smell of play-dough...but cherry scented play-dough?! Awesome.
