Scented Play dough

I can think of no better way to get kids interested in cooking than teaching them how to make their own play dough. This recipe is particularly cool because it gets its color and scent from Kool- aide! I especially like homemade play dough because it’s not as messy as the store bought stuff and it’s so cheap to make.

1c flour
1c water
1/2c salt
2tbs cream of tartar (really cheap in the bulk section!)
1 pack Kool- aide (unsweetened) 2tbs vegetable oil

Mix all the ingredients together in a medium sized pot and cook over medium low heat until mixture becomes gummy. Store in an airtight container or a resealable plastic bag.

*The Play dough will be whatever color the Kool- aid crystals are.
