I have a recipe for play dough that I have made for years. I tried a Kool-Aid recipe (may not have been this exact recipe) and it was way too sticky, and ended up throwing it out. Here is the recipe that I find most successful for my grandchildren:

Play Dough (Non-Koolaid)

  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons cream of tartar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Food coloring of choice

Directions

Mix salt, flour and cream of tartar. Add water, oil and food coloring. Cook till the mixture is thick and the right consistency. I store in Ziploc bags.

Hint: Let the children get in on the act by measuring, etc. They enjoy it.

I got this recipe from The Ultimate Book of Kid Concoctions, by John E. Thomas and Danita Pagel.

Fruity Play Dough

21/4 cups flour

1 cup salt

2 Tbs unsweetened powder drink mix

4 Tbs cooking oil

1 cup water

Combine flour, salt, and powdered drink mix in a large bowl. Stir in cooking oil and water. Continue stirring until mixture is the consistency of bread dough. Remove dough from bowl and knead on a floured surface 2-3 minutes until firm. Store leftover dough in aritight container or plastic zip bag.
