Warning: this play-dough smells good enough to eat. Do not play with it on an empty stomach and keep a close eye on little ones that still put everything in their mouths. This play-dough is just too tempting!
We are big play-dough fans at this house, and I often get bored with making and playing with regular old play-dough.
Awhile back when I was testing out some no-cook play-dough recipes (still trying to find one that’s as good as the cooked version) I came across some comments that mentioned using Kool-Aid to color play-dough. What a genius idea! Not only do you get colorful play-dough, but you avoid food coloring (always seems to stain my hands) while getting the added bonus of sweet smelling dough!
Here’s my tried and tested recipe for cooked play-dough using Kool-Aid for the color and scent.
Combine all ingredients in a pot and stir.
Cook over low heat, stirring until a ball forms and color is thoroughly mixed.
Cool on foil. Store in covered container.
