Play-doh fun!



I wanted to make some new play-doh for the upcoming school year, our last batch needed thrown out. For fun I decided we would make a rainbow of playdoh instead of just one color. I quadrupled the recipe and then diveded it uncolored into seven bowls. Once divided we colored and kneaded them. I knead the dough like pizza dough with plenty of flour until the colors are fully mixed and it is no longer sticky. I had to add yellow food coloring to the the yellow, because the yellow Kool-aid did nothing. Also the blue was made with food coloring because apparently the blue pack of kool-aid I bought turned out to be red. Here is the recipe:
3 cups flour
1/2 cup salt
2 packages unsweetend Kool-Aid
2 cups boiling water
3 tablespoons oil
Mix dry ingredients together in bowl. Mix the liquids together and pour them over the dry. Stir the mixture until it forms a ball. As the mixture cools, it will become less sticky. After it cools take it out of bowl and knead until smooth.

Sweetpea is very excited about all the new colors to play with!

Impressive - that's a lot of dough! I printed out this recipe a while ago but have yet to do it. This inspired me :)
