Kool-Aid Playdough

Every 2-3 weeks in my class, we make playdough. It's so fun and they love it, so I thought I'd share the recipe. Super easy!

2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup salt
1 teaspoon alum
2 pkgs unsweetened Kool-Aid
3 tablespoons oil
2 cups water, boiling

Combine flour, salt, alum, and Kool-Aid in a bowl. Add oil and water to dry ingredients and watch color explode. Stir until cooled (just a little) and knead on floured board.

You will probably have to add more flour. I always do:)

Store in sealed container. Do not refrigerate.

I keep mine in a Ziploc baggie. It makes a lot. Enough for each of my 15 kids to have their own ball. It lasts forever. And it's so soft! I used green this week for St. Patty's Day!!
