When I taught pre-school, the teachers would go in a rotation to make our own Play-Doh for our ankle biters. I mean, a school could go broke if they had to keep buying it and the stuff dries out so fast....so make it! I couldn't find a recipe like the one we used, but this one is really close. The only thing we didn't use was the Kool-Aid. I'm sure it makes the play-doh smell good, but that also seems like it would lead to a lot more eating of it than playing with it. ;-)
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 cup salt2 t cream of tartar2 packages of Kool Aid (don't use purple, it turns grey)
- Food Coloring (optional)
- 1 T oil
- 1 cup water
Cook all ingredients over medium heat until it forms a ball (5-10 minutes). You can enhance the colors by using food coloring if you like. That's it! Eazy Peezy Lemon Squeezy.
Have fun & get messy!
