Fun With Playdough!


If you’re ever looking for a fun indoor activity with your kids, try making your own playdough! This is a great activity that touches on so many different developmental areas – science, math, fine motor development, and creativity.

This playdough recipe is so easy to make, and it smells much better than the traditional playdough because you’re using Kool-Aid. I was nervous at first because I thought our hands would be stained the same color as the Kool-Aid, but I was pleasantly surprised about how easy it washed off. I would recommend wearing an apron, especially for the kids. The quality of this play dough is also wonderful.

If you try this recipe, we’d love to see what kind of creations you make! Feel free to send pictures to info@toyconomy.com.

Enjoy your play time!

Playdough Recipe

Mix in a bowl:

2 ½ cups flour

2 pkgs. Kool-Aid

1 TB cream of tartar or alum

Heat in microwave for 3 minutes:

1 ½ cups water

Add water to flour mixture along with:

3 TBS. oil

Mix, knead well and store in a plastic bag or Tupperware. If your playdough is too sticky just put the playdough in the microwave for 1 minute at a time. Then knead it when it comes out. Eventually, it will pull from the bowl and be really great playdough. The alum or cream of tartar keeps this playdough from spoiling or getting too sticky. Store in the refrigerator if you aren’t going to use it again right away.
