My Homemade Playdough
Face it, Playdough is crumbly and I think it stinks! Of course, I'm SUPER sensitive to smells (hence the reason I don't want to set foot (or even drive thru McDonalds).
My friend Lesli shared this wonderful Playdough recipe with me. She got it from her daughters' school.
1 ¼ cup flour
¼ cup salt
1 package of Kool Aid
1 cup boiling water
1 ½ Tablespoon oil
Mix dry ingredients. Mix liquid ingredients. Pour together in bowl. Knead into ball. Keep in Ziploc.
Of course, the color of Kool Aid dictates the color of your Playdough. The only color that's a challenge to get is yellow. I doubled the recipe, so I used two packs of yellow KoolAid and added a pack of orange KoolAid. It was a close yellow.
I promise, this Playdough smells great. If little hands put some in their mouths, no worries. It will taste EXTREMELY salty but won't hurt them. The oil keeps the Playdough from being crumbly. It's oh so soft. It lasts for months in a Ziploc bag. The best part is for about $5 you can make enough playdough for more than twenty kids!
