Kool Aid Play Dough


Hello Saving and More readers! My name is Audra and I blog over at
Once a Mom Always a Cook
I am so excited to guest post for you! I am a mother of three hungry children, so I am always in my kitchen experimenting. Today I am sharing my recipe for Kool Aid Play Dough, so let's get started.

Kool aid play dough is a perfect activity for children of all ages. Homemade kool aid play dough will provide hours of fun not only for the kids but for adults too! This year for my little one's preschool class I am wrapping a small amount of play dough and tagging it with the message
"Everyone Kneads a Little Love"
and of course everyone will get the recipe too! If you have never made homemade play dough I highly encourage you to do so! It is such a fun, family activity everyone will enjoy!

Now on to the recipe...
1 cup of flour
1/4 cup salt
2 tsp Cream of Tartar
1 package of any flavor/color kool-aid (.14oz)
(I used strawberry in this batch)
1 TBS + 1 1/2 tsp oil
1 cup of water

In a large bowl mix dry ingredients. In a small sauce pan heat oil and water just until simmering. Add water and oil to the dry ingredients. Mix well with a large spoon until a dough mixture is developed. Once the dough has cooled knead into smooth play dough. Store in airtight container and refrigerate when not in use.

Adding kool aid not only gives the dough color but gives the dough fun scents such as lemon, cherry, strawberry, lime, and orange.
No worries, if your child consumes the play dough it is non-toxic and it shouldn't stain hands! Yay 🙂
Thank you again for having me and I wish everyone a Happy Valentine's Day!
