Today, Evie and I made our very own yummy-smelling Play Dough. And it was easy. Who knew?
Evie was able to help measure the dry ingredients and dump them into the bowl. I added the boiling water and kneaded the dough until it was cool enough for Evie to handle.
She really enjoyed playing! We rolled the dough out with rolling pins, cut shapes out with some of Angel Grammy's cookie cutters, and pressed forks and spoons into the dough to make pretty patterns. We stuck our fingers in the dough, pulled it apart, and cut it with a butter knife. Evie was entertained for quite awhile.
Plus, my kitchen smelled like Berry Punch all afternoon!
I halved this recipe and it still made plenty.
Kool-Aid Play Dough 2 1/2 c flour 1 c salt 3 t vegetable oil 2 c boiling water 2 packages Kool-Aid
Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add water and oil. Stir well. Knead until smooth. (Careful! Dough will be very hot at first.) Store in an air tight container.
I have been married for more than 11 years to my fantastic husband, Chris, and we have two beautiful and energetic children. Evie is 5, and full of spunk and sparkle. Ethan is 2, and has taught me about trains and construction vehicles and Buzz Lightyear - and about sweet boy cuddles.
I strive to be gentle and kind - a reflection of the love Christ has shown to us. I don't always live it perfectly, but I am working towards a life of gratitude, joy, and love!
