One thing I learned while working at a daycare is that kids love playdough!!!!!   And when you have a bunch of kids it is more cost-effective to make it yourself…..and if it happens to smell amazing – well that is an added bonus too ….So Hope that you enjoy this – my kids did all the time when they were younger….

 

 

 

 

What you’ll need:

1 cup flour
1/4 cup salt
2 Tbsp cream of tartar
1 envelope unsweetened Koolaid
1 cup water
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil

To make:

1. Mix flour, salt, cream of tartar, Koolaid and water in medium saucepan. Stir in oil.

2. Mix over medium heat for 3-5 minutes until mixture forms a ball in the center of pan. Dough will start darkening in color.

3. Remove from pan {caution: will be HOT}. Knead until soft.

4. Store in airtight container or ziploc bag.
