Recipe: Fool-Proof Play Dough
This is a great play dough recipe that makes great use of Kool-aid powder for both colour and scent! It's very pliable and easy to clean up afterwards. When my eldest kids were in kindergarten, I used to make it to drop off to their classrooms. If stored in a ziploc bag, it will keep for a very long time.
This recipe is easy enough for an older child to do with some supervision for the handling of the boiling water.
Combine the flour and salt in a bowl.
Dissolve drink crystals or food colouring in boiling water. Add the oil and water to the dry ingredients and mix well.
If dough is too sticky, add a little more flour. Knead for 5 minutes, until dough is smooth and pliable.
