    MapleLeafLili Hill's Note:

    When I lived in Alberta, Canada, there was a lady who sold this play-dough at the local farmer's market. It smelled soooo good, that I decided to try making it myself.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    batch

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup cold water
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (I use Crisco oil)
    • 2 (1/4 ounce) packages the same flavor kool-aid unsweetened flavored drink mix
    • 1 cup flour
    • 1/4 cup salt
    • 5 teaspoons cream of tartar

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a pot, combine water, oil, Kool-Aid, and salt.
    2. 2
      Heat and stir until salt dissolves.
    3. 3
      Add Flour and cream of tartar all at once to above.
    4. 4
      Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until well mixed and dough forms a ball, (this should only take a couple minutes).
    5. 5
      Remove from heat once the dough forms into a ball.
    6. 6
      Cool on a clean baking sheet, kneading the dough as soon as it is cool enough to handle.
    7. 7
      Cool completely, and let your kids play away!
    8. 8
      (On occasion, I've mixed in a matching essential oil to enhance the fruity scent if I only have one package of a Kool-aid flavour on hand.) Store this Play Dough in a resealable plastic baggy or plastic container.
    9. 9
      It should last for a couple months, depending on how often your children play with it.

      For sure my favorite Kool Aid Play Dough recipe. I love that it makes up quick, doesn't make a mess, and my kids looooooove playing with the end results. Plus, it costs next to nothing, and I get time to play with my kiddos. Thanks so much for posting this recipe!

      This is the best playdough recipe ever!!! It's nice and soft. I cheated though and used off-brand kool-aid. I will definitely use kool-aid brand next time.(didn't smell as good) also, I didn't cook it like it said. I just boiled the water and stirred it into the dry ingredients. Oh, and the first batch I made was a tad sticky, so on the next batch, I added an extra tsp. of oil. It was perfect!!5 tsp. of cream of tarter seemed like a lot, compared to some other playdough recipes, so I only did 1 tsp. Thanks for a great recipe!!
