I looked up this blog that Laurel linked to a few days ago.
As I was browsing it and mentally storing away ideas for future crafts,
I ran into this recipe. I thought it sounded easy enough
and the only ingredient I didn't have on hand was
a packet of Kool-Aid.
We went to the store that evening to buy a few packets
and I made some the next morning.
I made Tropical Punch Playdough for our first batch.
The kids LOVE it!
I love it and it smells so good!
It's a cheap craft to make and play with.
Hands-on is such a preschool thing and it produces at least a half hour of quiet play!
I will say, though, that if you decide
to make some of your
own Kool-Aid playdough,
I would recommend
cutting the oil down to 1-1 1/2 Tablespoons.
I used the 3 T. that the recipe called for and it
is so greasy!
