Homemade, Edible Play Dough

Max and I wanted to make play dough. Well, I wanted to make play dough. So I did and it was awesome.

This stuff is just as good, if not better, than the kind you buy. I originally got the recipe from Family Sponge but I changed it a teeny tiny bit.

So grab an adult, cause you'll need a little help on the stove.

Basically throw:


2 cups flour
1 cup salt
2 cups water
2 tablespoons oil
4 teaspoons cream of tartar

packets of Kool-Aid 
(colours of your choice, about 50 cents each)

into a big pot over medium heat and stir.

This is what it looks like half way through

Once it looks and feels like play dough, it's done. Easy, right?
Then I put the dough onto a cookie sheet to cool a bit. When it was okay to touch, I separated it into 5 balls because I wanted 5 different colours.

Make little nests in the centre and add the Kool-Aid.

Fold in the Kool-Aid, kneading the dough. This was the most fun part. But while I was kneading, the other balls got a little dry. So I added a small dollop of oil to my hands while working with the other dough and it helped. Or else, keep them covered at all times - plastic wrap, tupperware, anything.


My finished play dough! 
I used the whole packets to get a the most saturated colours. You may add as much or as little as you want!
HAVE FUN!
