Home-Made Play Dough w/"Flair"
Print this Recipe

Recipe for one basic batch:
- 2 1/2 C Flour
- 1/2 C Salt
- 1 TBS Alum
- 4 packs of Kool Aid powdered mix
- 2 C Boiling Water
- 3 TBS Vegetable Oil

Instructions for jarred gifts:

- Make two batches, and split each batch into 2 even parts (so you have 4 small batches) WITHOUT yet adding the Kool Aid packets!


- Have 8 packets of Kool Aid ready, grouped into two each of the same flavor/color (2 red, 2 yellow, 2 blue, and 2 green, for example). Add two packets of the same flavor/color of Kool Aid powder to each of the four mixtures.

-Add the finished mixtures to small decorated mason jars, place one fun cookie cutter on each of the lids. Put a pretty colored ribbon around each mason jar to identify which color will "magically appear" once the water and oil are added!

Note: Since this is a jarred gift, you will have to add a tag, instructing to add 1/2 C Boiling Water and 3/4 TBS to each mason jar!


Place jars in a basket for a fun and practical display!

Not only does this play dough last an incredibly long time, the colors are vibrant and the dough smells wonderful!

Hint: If you make three of the dough mixtures primary colors, they can be mixed together, as your child plays with them, to make secondary colors and some yummy scent combinations!!
