Homemade Kool-Aid Playdough

Homemade Kool Aid Playdough

Ingredients for Play dough

Making play dough is really very easy.  The dough comes out smelling fruity and delicious and the color is so vibrant.  It is a matter of using 6 ingredients (including water) and about 7 minutes per batch.

Pick out several different flavors.  The colors come out very similar to the packaging that they came in.  You can see in the picture below the final color. *Please note that I added a few drops of yellow food coloring to the Lemonade flavor to achieve the yellow in the picture.  The original color was more of an off-white and I wanted a true yellow.  It still smells wonderful!

In order to keep your play dough moist and useable, store it in a sealed container such as these plastic bowls or a Ziplock baggie.  They will last a while if you take care of them.

About welcomebabysl

Welcoming a newborn baby into your home is an overwhelming experience. Like other first-time parents, you are probably experiencing feelings of excitement and anticipation, as well as anxiety and uncertainty. The next few years of your child's life are very critical, and parents play a vital role in promoting healthy growth and development. Because children don’t come with a user’s manual, parents are left to follow their instincts, rely on previous knowledge, research the answers or ask family and friends for advice. It is definitely a learning experience, but not one that has to be done alone. Welcome Baby offers several different levels of support to first-time parents.
