12 Days of Christmas Recipes: #10 Homemade Playdoh

This is an easy recipe for playdoh that I used when I taught Kindergarten.  It really is no fail.  AND it uses ingredients you have at home. Your kids will love it.  Maybe while you make cookies, they can roll this out.  

    • 2 1/2 cups flour
    • 1/2 cup salt (yes, cup)
    • 2 (1/4 ounce) packages non-sweetened Kool-Aid (you decide the color/smell)
    • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
    • 2 cups boiling water
    • 3 tablespoons oil
  1. Microwave water until bubbling (approx 2 min) DANGEROUSLY HOT.  Grown-ups only on this part.
  2. In a bowl, mix dry ingredients and add the water. (If you want to make two colors just divide the recipe and add 1 kool aid color to one and one to another. Or make multiple batches and store them seperately.)
  3. Stir with a wooden spoon first
  4. Knead until smooth (Careful-- it's hot! It may take a minute before you can stop stirring with a wooden spoon and use your hands) You may need to add extra flour for desired consistency, not likely though.
  5. Get out the cookie cutters!
  6. Keep in an airtight Tupperware or Zip Lock.

...And a partridge in a pear tree!
