This recipe is 100% edible and can be eaten + it really smells good. Whatever the color of of the Kool Aid that you use, is the color of the Play-dough. I like to make this kind when I’m working with really little ones, as they often put the clay in their mouths, this way I don’t have to worry!

3 teaspoons of Cream of Tartar
1 cup of flour
1 package of Kool-Aid Mix (any flavor of unsweetened)
1 tablespoon of cooking oil
1/2 cup of salt

No Cook Play Dough Recipe
- 1 cup of flour
- 1 cup of boiling water
- 2 tablespoons of cream of tartar
- a half cup of salt
- 1 tablespoon of oil
- Mix all the ingredients together. It’s quite hot so use caution.
- 1 ½ cups salt
- 4 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon alum (as a preservative)
- 1 ½ cups water
- Mix dry ingredients in a bowl then add water.
- When dough forms a ball, knead the dough, add a bit more water if it is too crumbly.
- The clay can also be baked.
- Set oven to 300º and bake for 30-40 minutes or until hard.
- Mix 2 parts of liquid laundry starch with 1 part powdered tempera paint or a few drops of food coloring as you paint on the paper.
- Or you can mix flour and cold water into a paste.
- Add food coloring or powdered tempera paint on the paper as you paint.
- Add a pinch of powdered soap flakes (I like Ivory) to help paint glide over the paper.
- Clean up is a lot easier too.
