kool aid play doh

just made some kool aid play doh with orion! he picked out kool aid colors at the store this morning and of course it's PINK! here's the recipe:
Kool-Aid Play Doh

2 1/2 cups of flour
1/2 cup salt
2 packages dry unsweetened Kool-Aid
2 cups boiling water
3 tablespoons oil

Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Mix the liquids together and pour them over the dry ingredients. Stir the mixture until it forms a ball (this may take a while - keep stirring). As the mixture cools, it will become less sticky. After the mixture has cooled, take it out of the bowl and knead it until it is smooth.

be sure to get TWO packets of kool aid. i just grabbed one of each color, so we had to combine. we did strawberry and grape and it's a nice dark pink color. i'm still waiting for it to cool down so we can play with it.
