Kool-Aid Play Dough

Here is a recipe for homemade play dough made out of Kool-Aid to add color and make it smell good. It is really easy and turns out great!

Kool-Aid Play Dough
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1 envelope of Kool-Aid
  • 1 cup flour
Add oil and salt to boiling water until salt dissolves. Add Kool-Aid and flour. Mix and then kneed with your hands when it is cool enough to handle until smooth.

Now for the fun Play-Dough Pictionary:
  • Divide into two teams (if you have enough players)
  • Each team secretly writes down 10 objects on strips of paper
  • Fold up the papers and put them in a bowl
  • One person on the opposite team picks one of the papers that the other team wrote down
  • That person has to sculpt the object on the paper using the play-dough
  • The rest of the people on his team guesses
  • If they guess right, that team gets a point
  • Now it is the other team's turn
  • The team with the most points wins
  • If there are not enough people to divide into teams, have everyone write down about 3 things and put them all in a bowl. Just take turns sculpting while everyone else guesses.

My kids LOVED it!
