Play dough is always such a hit. Here's a recipe I use to make it from scratch using Kool-Aid!
2 ½ cups flour
1 cup salt
2 packages of unsweetened Kool-Aid
3 tbp. Vegetable oil
2 cups water
Mix all ingredients in large sauce pan on med-low heat. Continually stir until dough forms a ball. (This will take awhile). Remove play dough and place on wax paper. Knead dough for several minutes then store in zip-lock bag in fridge. *The Kool-Aid will naturally color the play dough, but if you want a more vibrant color add food coloring while mixing dough.
