I used to make this for my daughters when they were little. It's non-toxic and the gunk washes out easily. Adults have just as much fun, if not more.

I used this recipe for years when I taught pre-school, with one addition--add 4 teaspoons cream of tartar with the other dry ingredients. Excellent texture--better than store-bought and the kids love the smell from the kool-aid.
