Greeting Sandy with Scented Play Dough

Leave a comment

As we wait for the great hurricane Sandy, I did something I’ve always wanted to do.  I made playdough!

Mix together in a pot:
1 cup flour
1/4 cup salt
1 T cream of tartar or cornstarch (I ran out of cream of tartar.  I thought it worked better than cornstarch, but worked in a pinch.)
1 packet of kool-aid
1 cup of water
1 T oil

The fun part is if you mix all the dry ingredients secretly, then let the kids add the water… it magically turns into the color they “wish”. =)
Stir on low heat until ball forms.  It’s sticky but should scrape right off the bottom of the pan.

Roll out onto the counter, and voila!  Scented playdough!

Let the fun begin!
