Sweet-Smelling Play Dough Recipe

Kool-Aid 3This recipe for Sweet-Smelling Play Dough is from the May 2009 issue of Highlights High Five magazine.  Making and playing with it is a very inexpensive way to have fun with your kids!

Ingredients: packet of unsweetened drink mix (Kool-Aid or any brand), flour, vegetable oil, salt, cream of tartar

1. In a bowl: mix together 2 cups of water, the drink mix, and 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil.

2. In a saucepan: mix together 2 cups of flour, 1 cup of salt, and 4 teaspoons of cream of tartar.

3. Slowly add the liquid from the bowl into the saucepan.  Stir.

4. Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it looks like mashed potatoes.  Remove the dough from the pot to cool.

5. When the dough is cool, knead it until smooth.  This sweet-smelling dough will last a long time if you store it in a covered container.
