Play Dough Recipe

  •  2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 packages of unsweetened Kool- Aid
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 3 tablespoons cooking oil

Mix flour, salt and Kool- Aid until well blended.  Add boiling water and oil and blend.  When cool enough to handle knead until color is blended.  Store in a plastic bag after totally cooled.

Write or trace names with the play dough:  Roll play dough into ropes and make letters to spell names (If child is very young print first name on paper so child can trace letters to place the play dough ropes to spell their name)    Letter cookie cutters to cut out play dough to spell child’s name and those of others is also fun.
