Clay ( play dough) is a VERY popular activity at our house. And now that it is getting colder, we will be doing even more activities like this. My mom made clay for us growing up and so I have always made clay for my kids. The one downside is that it smells like salt and wet flour because, well, that’s mainly what it is. It isn’t a big deal, but my sister found a recipe that uses Kool-Aid and it makes it smell like whatever flavor it is AND makes it that color. So you don’t even need to add food coloring. A two for one.
This recipe makes four balls this size. They fit perfectly in a sandwich baggie.
Here is the recipe:
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup salt
2 packages of Kool-Aid (any one flavor you want)
Then add 2 cups boiling water with 3 tablespoons vegetable oil and stir until well mixed.
Pull out the cookie cutters and have fun!!!
