The Best Playdough, EVER!!
I am a former preschool teacher, kindergarten teacher, and most importantly I was a Mom to young children! Through all those years I think I have found the best recipe for playdough. It is so much better than the stuff you buy at the store and you can choose the color and smell of it just by adding Kool-Aid! It is great for cutting out shapes with a rolling pin and cookie cutters and if you store it in a sealed ziploc bag it will last a long time. Give it a try, I know you won't go back!
4 cups flour
1 cup salt
4 cups water
4 tablespoons oil
1/2 cup cream of tartar
1 package (small) unsweetened Kool-Aid (The vibrant colors are best!)
Mix all ingredients in a sauce pan. Cook and stir over low/medium heat until play is completely formed and no longer sticky. Allow to cool before playing with. Store in ziploc bag.
This could easily be cut in half but since I had two children (plus me LOL) I needed a lot!
