Extended directions for Kool Aid Playdough Recipe
This is one of my favorite playdough recipes. The color, scent and taste you get from the Kool Aid is just amazing.
Before we begin we have to collect the ingredients. We have some Kool Aid, cream of tartar, flour, sugar, water and oil. The oil is already added to the water.
Add the dry ingredients to a pan. The Kool Aid doesn’t look like it will give much color at this stage, but just wait.
Add the water/oil mix to the pan and stir, the Kool Aid will explode with color. Keep stiring until all lumps are gone.
When it’s all stired well together it should look something like this. Now start cooking on medium heat, while slowly stiring.
When heated for a while it will start to get thicker, just like the image below. At this point you can expect 1-2 minutes until it’s done.
When done it should look like this. You can try to cook some more of the water out of it, just be careful so you don’t burn it.
My playdough was a bit sticky, but it was simple and quick to fix, just knead with some flour and it will improve quickly.
The finished playdough looked like this, very nice color and the scent is amazing. It actually tastes ok too, but not in very large portions I suspect. Good luck!
