  • 1 Cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Tsp Cream of Tartar
  • 2/3 Cup Salt
  • 1 Kool-Aid Packets


  1. Mix all of your ingredients except for Kool-Aid packets into a pot.
  2. Next mix the ingredients well and then mix in your Kool-Aid packet
  3. Now the mixture will look very funky.
  4. Place the pot onto your stove burner at about a medium-high heat.
  5. I did this so the kids could do the stirring and not stress about it getting too hot to ruin the mixture.
  6. The dough will thicken up as it cooks the play dough will smooth out as it cooks up, just keep stirring!
  7. I used a bamboo spoon to flip the dough around in the pot while it was cooking.
  8. Put your playdough on a plate to cool off
  9. Separate and store!
