Kool-aid Play Dough

This is the recipe for play dough my mom used to make for us when I was a little girl! It's perfect for the first day activity described below.

Mix together:
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup salt
2 pkg kool-aid (unsweetened)
2 tablespoons cream of tarter

Add:
2 cups boiling water
3 tablespoons oil

Mix 3-4 minutes or until cool enough to mix with hands.
Knead and store in an airtight container in refrigerator.

You will most likely need to make a few batches, depending on how much you give to each child.

Have fun!

Does the Kool Aid stain the kiddo's hands?

I haven’t made this particular recipe yet, so I can’t be sure. My mom doesn’t remember it staining, and said she wouldn’t have made it if it did stain the hands. I’ll make it this week and let you know how it actually works!
