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!!

I love the way this play dough turned out! I haven't found a better recipe out there! It doesn't dry out your hands while playing with it and it is nice and smooth. For some reason the first time I made it the dough remained sticky even though I added quite a bit more flour (I didn't add COLD water, just tap water...I don't know if that was the problem?) Anyway, the second time I made it I followed the directions EXACTLY and it came out perfect. This is a keeper! Thank you!

This recipe is great. The kids and I made a few batches and gave them as party favors along with a cookie cutter. The kids enjoyed them so much that I had countless phone calls asking for the recipe. Even a few of the teachers wanted some for the classroom.

What an easy and fun project for kids! My son and I really enjoyed making this scented play dough together today and now he's having fun rolling it out and making shapes with it using the cookie cutters! The results are great because you spend time together, making memories for everyone involved. Thank you for sharing a great recipe, Maple Leaf Lili!

I have a very similar recipe that is just wonderful and a bit simpler than the one posted. Instead of cooking all the ingredients, all you do is combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and pour in the boiling water. I use my stand mixer's paddle attachment and let it go to work. Super easy, and only one bowl to wash!
