Homemade Play doh

I really hate the smell of play doh. So I made some homemade stuff. Instead of food coloring, I used Kool Aid packets--the ten cent ones without the sugar. This blue play doh smelled like raspberries (why is the fake blue the designated color of raspberries?) which is infinitely better than that awful plastic smell.


Homemade Play Doh

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup of salt(don't use the kosher, you want plain iodized salt)
2T vegetable oil
4 packets of Kool Aid
1 cup of water

Combine all ingredients together and let your kid play with it outside. It will keep if wrapped in plastic for long enough for you to get grossed out by the debris in it then toss it and make some more.
