Here's the basic No Cook Kool Aid Play Dough recipe I use:
(this gives a nice soft and pliable dough)
2 1/3 cups all purpose flour
2 cups boiling water
1/2 cup salt
2 packets kool aid
2 tbsp. cream of tarter
2 tbsp vegetable oil
Mix all dry ingredients into a large bowl and stir.
Add oil and boiling water.
Mix well until dough begins to form.
Let cool for a few minutes.
Remove from bowl and place onto wax paper,
aluminum foil or other work surface.
Knead until you reach desired consistency.
Add a little more flour if dough is too sticky.
This is the poem I included:
This little ball of play dough
I made just for you.
So mold it, roll it and stretch it too
because with a little imagination
it can be anything you want it to.
Tip - I am always on the look out for marked down Kool Aid packets at the store. It's a great way to stock up for when you need to make large batches like this. Kids really enjoy the scented dough.
What other back to school gift ideas do you have?
