Craft: Play Dough

Why buy playdough when you can make it yourself and turn it into a fun craft for kids? Using koolaid to colour your play dough also gives it a cool scent and vibrant color.

Craft: Play Dough

What you need:

An adult helper
1 cup flour
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
1 cup water
1 package of unsweetened Koolaid
1 tablespoon oil

What you do:

1. With the help of an adult mix all the ingredients in a pot.
 
2. Cook and stir mixture over medium heat for 3-5 minutes.
 
3. Your mixture will look like a big globby mess. Don't worry.
 
4. When the mixture forms a ball in the center of the pot put it on a lightly floured surface and knead.
 
5. Be careful not to burn your hands. The mixture will be hot from cooking. Ask an adult to check the temperature of the dough and if it is too hot wait for it to cool down and then knead it.
 
6. Store your play dough in an airtight container or bag.
