I grew up with homemade playdough/Salt dough. I have found a new recipe made with kool-aide powder. It is smoother than my mom's recipe and smells good too. I like it so much better. It does not crumble or leave residue on your hands. It is really simple to make.
Kool aide play dough
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 teaspoons cream of tarter
1 envelope kool-aide unsweetened drink mix
mix dry ingredients in a medium sauce pan.
Stir in oil and water
1 cup water
1 1/2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
cook on a medium high heat for a few minutes until the dough forms a ball.

it comes together quickly
remove to a floured surface and knead for a few minutes until smooth and cool enough for the kids to handle.
store in a zip top bag or a container with a tight fitting lid.
