Kool-Aid Scented Play Dough

READY IN: 5mins
YIELD: 1 batch


  • 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
  • 14
    cup salt
  • 5
    teaspoons cream of tartar


  • In a pot, combine water, oil, Kool-Aid, and salt.
  • Heat and stir until salt dissolves.
  • Add Flour and cream of tartar all at once to above.
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until well mixed and dough forms a ball, (this should only take a couple minutes).
  • Remove from heat once the dough forms into a ball.
  • Cool on a clean baking sheet, kneading the dough as soon as it is cool enough to handle.
  • Cool completely, and let your kids play away!
  • (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.
  • It should last for a couple months, depending on how often your children play with it.
