I got this recipe from my daughter's preschool teacher. It is simple to make and it smells great!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (1/4 ounce) package Kool-Aid (any flavour or colour you want to use)
  • 12 tablespoon hot water


  1. Pour Kool-Aid in a very small container (Glad Mini Round/4oz containers work very well).
  2. Add water.
  3. Stir well until the Kool-Aid is dissolved.
  4. Have fun!

This is a great idea, smells great too. My only problem with this is that I found the paint a little runny so would use less water next time, you also have to be very careful not to get it on your skin or clothes because it does stain. Toddler DD loved this!!

Wow! This was so easy and the colors are so vibrant! When I tagged this, I thought I had Kool-Aid. I didn't, but I did have a powdered "Raspberry Ice" tea mix (the kind you dump into a bottle of water). I used 2 (.07 oz) packets with the 1/2 T water and the color was a gorgeous deep-red "blood" color! I'm sure you have to be careful about staining, but it's easier than using those dried cake pallettes. Great idea!
