All-Time Favorite

Today my youngest and I made our all-time favorite play dough.  I acquired the recipe last year from my daughter’s pre-school teacher and it has made its way onto our “must make often” list in our household.  The best part of this play dough is that it is scented!  You add Kool-Aid mix packets to the dough recipe to make it colored and scented at the same time…so fun!  I think I’ve passed this recipe on to all of my close friends who have children, so I am now thrilled to pass it on to all of you.  Enjoy!

2 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon alum (can be found in the spice section of your grocery store)

1/2 cup salt

2 cups boiling water

3 tablespoons oil

2 packets Kool-Aid (any flavor/color you would like)

Mix flour, alum, salt and drink mix.  Add water and oil.  Mix well.  Continue to add additional flour until you reach a smooth, non-sticky consistency that you are happy with.
