Homemade Play Dough

 

Have you ever tried to make play dough at home?  You should.  It is super easy and most, if not all, of the ingredients can be found right in your kitchen cupboard.  Your child will be so excited to make this and will be equally excited to play with it.  With the exception of mixing in the hot water, your child can really make this on their own.  Just make sure to lend a hand with reading and measuring the ingredients. Have fun!

Here is one of the easiest recipes I have found and made personally with my kids.  It works, it's easy, and it smells really good!  It will not taste good, though, so no need to worry about your child eating it.  But, with non-toxic ingredients, no harm will be done if they do take a nibble. 

                                                    2 1/2 cups Flour
                                                       1/2 cup Salt
                                             3 Tablespoons Cooking Oil
                                       1 package Kool-Aid (unsweetened)
                                                    1 cup Hot Water

                                         Mix flour, salt, oil, and Kool-Aid.
                                          Add the cup of water. Mix well.
                                             Knead until dough forms.


Store in a sealed ziplock bag in the refrigerator when not in use.
