Simply Made Sunday- Kool-aid Playdough

I've been dying to make Kool-aid playdough with Lu. Either we don't have time or we find a "different" project to do! But today I had an excuse, I needed to make something for Simply Made Sunday and this was it!! :) Lu has been playing with it for an hour now, without a sound just diligently playing! YAY! Now I know what grabs her attention, I guess I will have to make a new batch weekly HAHA!
Heres the how to: Mix together 1 cup and 2 tbsp of flour
1/2 cup of salt
1 pkg any flavor klool-aid ... then stir in 2 tbsp of vegetable oil, and 1/2 cup of water.
Lu tried to stir with a spoon but that was too hard for her, so she mixed with her hands, which was just as good! It starts to form shape after a couple minutes, then we just kneaded it on a flour surface.
My little Lu is in all her playdough glory. She really enjoyed making it and playing with it for that matter! It was fun!

  1. I have been meaning to do this for the longest time. We made Kool Aid paint once and that was a lot of fun. It smells so good when it dries and it looks like watercolors.

  2. I forgot about this recipe. I used to make it with my kids when I taught pre-k. I will have to do it with Wes. He would love it!

    Thanks for linking up!

  3. I have been wanting to make this too!

  4. I bet it smelled so good. What a fun idea.
