Lets make Play Doh!

Never again will I buy play doh. I found all the ingredients around the house, and it was so easy to make. We made a ton of it. Here is a recipe to make the play doh with kool-aid to make it colored and scented

Play Doh Recipe with Kool-Aid:

2 cups of flour
1 cup salt
2 packages dry unsweetened Kool-Aid
2 cups boiling water
2 tablespoons of Vegetable oil

Mix all the dry ingredients together and all the liquid ingredients together. Then pour the liquids over the the dry. Stir the mixture until it forms a ball. As it cools it will become less sticky. After it has cooled knead it until it is smooth.

There are also recipes out there to make it with peanut butter so that it is edible. The above recipe is completely safe, but wouldn't advise eating it, for I don't think it would taste very good. :)


  1. Question for you...
    Will the food coloring in the Kood-Aid come off on their hands, etc.? I've seen this recipe before, and that's something I've always wondered.


  2. No problem with the Kool-aid :) Pleasantly Surprised!


Thank you for your comment! :)
