I got this recipe from a teacher friend of mine several years ago. It is still my favorite! It has an amazing consistency, fun smell, and lasts for ever (we refrigerate it in a ziplock) Over the years I have made just about every “flavor/color” of play dough. I try to base my color choice around what is happening that time of year. Green for St. Patrick’s Day, Red for the 4th of July, etc..
Here is the recipe! ENJOY…
2.5 cups flour
half cup salt
2 Tablespoons Cream of Tartar (I’ve left this out before and it still works)
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cups boiling water
1 package kool-aid (just the 0.13oz package, not the mix with sugar)
In a large bowl add all dry ingredients and mix well (salt, flour, cream of tartar, Kool-Aid). Add the oil and boiling water to the mixture and mix this with a large spoon until it becomes very firm. It should be cool enough to handle after a few minutes of stirring. Lay out some wax paper and flour for the last step. Use your hands and roll it in some more flour if it feels too sticky.
