I have so many packets of Kool-Aid! I found a great rainy day activity to get rid of one or two. It reminds me of being a kid. :)
The recipe is slightly altered and from RecipeZarr. The idea is from Amy at Mom Advise/The Motherload.
1 Cup Flour
1-2 Packages Kool-Aid
1 Tablespoon Cream of Tarter
1 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil
1/4 Cup Salt
3/4 Cup Boiling Water
Mix all dry ingredients in bowl then oil, then pour boiling water in and mix throughly. Let cool a bit before giving it to the kids!!
Wrap in cellophane or air tight container and store in fridge. The play dough should last a few months. Be sure the label and date!
We made blue and pink. I'd recomend darker colors, but that was my daughter's choice! We used cookie cutters, plastic silverware, a rolling pin, etc. It kept the kids busy for about an hour. And they've asked to play with it several times this week. Even though we have Play-Doh already, unponed Play-Doh at that, my daughter thinks this stuff is the coolest!!
This would be lots of fun for holidays! Green and red at Christmas, pink and red at Valentines, etc. Would be great for a kids table over the holidays or a birthday party activity, you get the idea! Cheap fun!
