Looking for a great Kool-Aid playdough recipe that does not use boiling water or cream of tartar? I have the perfect recipe for you!

My two youngest wanted red Kool-Aid playdough this afternoon, so we whipped up a batch using this recipe. No cream of tartar. No boiling water. 

It only took a few minutes. It smells wonderful. It is completely safe to taste (but super salty), doesn’t stick to hands, and used ingredients we had available.

Recipe Notes

If you don't have Kool-Aid, you can add food coloring and kid-safe essential oils to get the color and fragrance you want.

All you need is flour, oil, salt, Kool-Aid, and hot water.

You need:

1 cup all purpose flour

1/4 cup salt

1 packet of Kool-Aid

1 TBSP oil

1/2 cup water

Mix your dry ingredients together

I got my water hot using the faucet. It wasn’t too hot. The kids were able to mix it together by hand without getting burned. I don’t like using boiling water in recipes that I am making with my children’s help.

Mix the oil into the water, and pour it into the dry mixture.

Stir until it forms a dough. If it is too dry, add a smidge more water.

If it is too sticky, add a tiny amount of oil. I had to do this. I added about a teaspoon to mine, and it turned out perfect.

This recipe will not stick to hands or surfaces. It also does not crumble all over your floors.

Store it in an airtight container when you are all done.

 

I hope your family enjoys this recipe as much as mine has!
