I made three batches in purple, green, and orange for a Halloween playdate- the consistency was fantastic and the kids had a ball!

This turned out great! I needed to make red playdough for my daughter's class and the Kool-Aid Tropical Punch made it the perfect red! It smells great too!

We passed this recipe through our day home association. We made it as a fundraiser at a trade show. Each provider was to make one package for the show...we all made extra to have at home. It was a huge hit with everyone, every provider who contributed said it was the best playdough they have ever made. The kids love the smells and the colors are fabulous. Only thing was some of them cheaped out and bought no name juice crystals...do not use no name...use Kool aid like the recipe calls. The color isnt as bright and the smell isnt as strong.

Great recipe with minor change. The first time was sticky so I added more flour. I added 3 cups of flour instead of 2 1/2, and added the cream of tarter. I had to kneed the dough for a minute or two longer and then it was perfect. Thanks!!

This is great playdough! I was a little nervous at first when it was so sticky, but after it cooled down, it was the perfect consistency. My 2 yr old loves it (amazingly enough, he didn't even try to eat it!), it smells great and it doesn't even stick to his hands!

We have been using this playdough in our house for several weeks now. I keep it in a ziploc in the fridge with some plastic cookie cutters that the boys can just pull out and play with it when they want. I found that it keeps nice and fresh in the fridge too. I did need to add a lot more flour - at first the consistency was more like a batter than a dough but once I added additional flour it was fine. My boys chose lemonade (yellow) as their first color and we could hardly see it which was kind of a disappointment - but it smelled delicious and the texture was terrific. Next time we tried grape and it was still kind of faint so we added another packet of koolaid which seemed to help the color, but that batch wasn't really workable - I don't know why. Lately my oldest son has been asking for the old playdough - I think he misses it only because of all bright colors. I still think this is a terrific idea and we'll keep experimenting - which is really half the fun anyway! Thanks for posting this recipe!
