Happy Wednesday ya’ll! How about some Microwave Kool-Aid Play-Doh today? I am so excited to share this quick and simple kids project with you, because it has been one of my kids favorite crafts this summer. And not only is it inexpensive to make, but it is so easy and fast!
I hesitated to share the recipe because there are so many homemade play-doh recipes out there, along with multiple Kool-Aid play-doh recipes. But in looking at many of them, the one thing I found was that almost all of them required Cream of Tartar and boiling and mixing on the stove. And while there is nothing wrong with those recipes, you know me…I prefer quick, easy and simple. I actually learned how to make this play-doh from my kids’ pre-school, where they always have this play-doh on hand. So thank you Kids Co-Op for providing us with this everlasting recipe and the gift of play!
2 cups Flour
1/2 cup Salt
2 Unsweetened Kool-Aid Packages
2 cups Boiling Water
3 Tbsp Oil
1. Mix Dry Ingredients Together.
WARNING: Play-Doh mixture will be HOT! I usually let it cool off for 5-10 minutes before kneading.
Voila! In less than 10 minutes (minus cooling time), your kiddos can have yummy looking and smelling homemade play-doh!
My kids love to try to guess what color the play-doh is going to turn out being, since the packaging can often be deceiving!
P.S: This recipe can be doubled or cut in half. Just make sure to split ingredients accordingly.
