Scented Playdough~

Homemade Play Dough

  • 1 package unsweetened Kool-Aid (we chose red cherry)

  • 2 cups water

  • 2 tablespoons veggie oil

In large sauce pan,over medium heat stir together the water, drink mix and oil until boiling!

    Then in a medium bowl mix together the following:

    • 2 cups flour

    • 1 cup salt

    • 4 teaspoons cream of tartar

    Add the dry ingredients to the boiling liquid over medium heat. Stirring constantly until it forms a ball. Remove form heat! Let cool completely and store in air tight container. Old yogurt containers work great!

    The play dough smells wonderful enough to eat.....but has a high sodium content so its not recommended

    This play dough makes a great gift to take to a birthday party or even Christmas....just add a few cookie cutters to the top of the gift instead of a bow!

    The Kool-Aid was 25 cents. The salt was 68 cents for a box! (enough for 4 batches)

    The cream of tartar was about $3.00 for a bottle, but I have enough to make quit a few batches of dough.

    It cost me about .75 cents to make 4 cups of play-dough!!!!!!
