Not Just For Fun...

Recommended Posts

This recipe is well known to parents of preschoolers everywhere. I love making it because it feels SO good to knead the dough while it is still warm. It's a nice gentle work out.


So here is the recipe for you kids at heart who might enjoy a warm, gentle hand workout as well as a little fun.


1 Cup Flour

1/4 Cup Salt

2 Tablespoons Cream of Tartar

1Cup Water

1 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil

1 Pkg Koolaid


Mix ingredients with a wooden spoon in a NONSTICK skillet over medium heat stirring constantly. Mixture will quickly form into a soft dough ball. Let cool to warm and knead away.


NOTE: The Koolaid is optional, for color only. You can leave it out and use a drop or two of your favorite smelling aroma therapy oil instead - unless you LIKE the smell of artificial cherry or grape... :rolleyes:


This play dough will stay soft for many, many months in a zip bag. No need to refrigerate and you can rewarm it in the microwave for a few seconds for warm hand workouts whenever you want.


Happy Kneading


Take care,

OK, how many of you used to eat the playdough? Gross, but I can still remember what it tastes like. Mmm.

Thanks for the memories!
