Kool Aid Play Dough 

Kool aid play dough is so easy to make and it provides so much fun!

Your play dough will come out the color of the Kool Aid so you could have a whole rainbow  of colored balls of dough for the kids to play with.

This recipe contains a lot of salt so not very good for little kids who might nibble on it.

In which case you might prefer my EDIBLE HONEY PLAY DOUGH.

Ingredients For Kool Aid Play Dough 

Skill: Easy although adult supervision is needed when using the stove
Time to prepare : 20 minutes
Equipment needed : Large saucepan, wooden spoon, heat source, heat proof work surface

  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1/2 cup of salt
  • 3 teaspoons of Cream of Tartar
  • 1 packet of Kool Aid powder
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil

How to Make Kool Aid Play Dough 

  1. Place the flour, salt, cream of tartar and Kool-Aid in the saucepan. Slowly add the oil and water. 
  2. Then over a medium heat, stir the mixture until it starts to thicken.
  3. Once it is thick and all the liquid is absorbed, tip the dough onto a heat proof work surface.
  4. Let the play dough cool slightly and then start to knead it till everything looks well mixed and you have a nice soft, pliable dough.
  5. Store the Kool Aid play dough in an airtight container. It should keep for a month or more.

Tip: I would discourage the kids from eating the play dough as it does contain quite a lot of salt.
