Homemade Playdough: The Only Use I Can Find For Kool-Aid
Someone recently asked me for this recipe for homemade playdough that I used to make long ago when I worked with preschoolers at church. Now I serve with the middle schoolers and as I typed out this recipe it struck me that maybe a little playdough wouldn’t be so bad on Sunday morning with some of the gals I’ve been hanging around.
The funny thing about middle school is that every once in a while you kind of want to just be a little kid again.
Heck. I’m 36 and I still enjoy a glob of playdough now and then.
And don’t even get me started on coloring. I can do that for days.
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup salt
2 packages unsweetened Kool-Aid powdered drink mix
2 cups boiling water
3 tablespoons oil
Mix flour, salt, Kool-Aid and oil until blended.
Add boiling water, mix with spoon until cool enough to knead.
Continue kneading until color is blended.
Store in air tight bag or container.
