I admit it, I don't like the smell of PlayDoh...I do like the feel, however. So, I was browsing through recipes for homemade playdough and came across one that is made with Kool-Aid instead of dye so I thought, "hmmm, that would probably smell great". So, when a friend and her daughters were over at the end of December, I gave it a try. It felt and smelled heavenly, so I decided to give it a go again recently.
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
2 tablespoons oil
2 cups water
Kool-Aid packets (I used our store brand)
Mix Kool-Aid, flour, salt in bowl. Add oil, then boiling water. Stir well. Knead on counter until mixed and smooth. I then put it in a frying pan for about 30 seconds on each side. That seemed to really make it pliable.
