Play Doh recipe

Here is an easy play doh recipe my DS received from his sweet teachers at his preschool class’s Christmas party. Ms. Mandy and Ms. Pam included the key ingredients and recipe in a cute gift bag with a recipe card. DS could not wait to try it out.


He was able to help me stir in the oil, flour, salt, and Kool-Aid*. I put it in a container to cool. It smelled so good! After it cooled a bit, he had a good time rolling it out and making “pizza” and “sandwiches.” We got out our cookie cutters and he made all kinds of cookies. He played with it for a good hour or more. Then, we just stored it in the refrigerator. This is a great snowy day activity to try!
