Thursday Crafts For Kids ~ Scented Play Dough


1 large pan

1 mixing bowl

1 mixing spoon

1 pack Kool-Aid powder, any flavor

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 cups salt

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

2 tablespoons cream of tartar

3 cups water

Food dye (optional)

Pick a flavor of Kool-Aid mix.

Help measure and mix all the ingredients, and put them into the bowl. If you want to add some color to the play dough, squeeze in a few drops of food dye and mix it in well.

Pour the mixture into the pan over very low heat.

Stir until the mixture is no longer sticky, and then remove it immediately.

Let it cool, and then present it to your child to play with! Store dough in a large plastic ziplock bag. Experiment with different scents for a never ending fun time!
