for the little tykes...kool aid play dough

last month i talked a little bit about messy play and how to make it a little more fun.
kids love play dough. it's one of my favorite messy play activities. i'm a total brand snob when it comes to play dough. you have to buy the name brand...unless you make it yourself.

i love making play dough with kids. they love to help, and it's a great way to get them to participate in something they may typically avoid. i let them help pour, stir, and pick the color (flavor). they love it and get so excited to see if actually turn into play dough. the recipe varies a little depending on the weather and climate.
1 c flour
1/2 c salt
1 packet of kool aid
1 c hot water (or more)
1 tbsp oil
mix salt and flour, and kool aid packet.
add hot water (boiling is not necessary) and oil.
stir until mixed. use hands as needed.
store in fridge in air tight container for several weeks or longer.

remember to use a ziploc bag if your child doesn't like the mess.
