Homemade Christmas: Goody Bags- Kool-Aid Play Dough Kits

As part of my Homemade Christmas series, I wanted to make the Goody Bags for Big Sister's classmates a kit for something they could make at home.  Big Sister has loved making her own Play Dough for years.  At first, I was intimidated by it, but when Prince Charming banned the real thing because of its awful stench, I had to come up with something else.


The Kool-Aid ones are non-toxic, edible, and smell great.  They last in an airtight container up to 3 months, and you have all kinds of color options!

I will share the printable I created for the Goody Bags tomorrow, but for today, here's the recipe:

Ingredients:
1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup salt
1 Pkg unsweetened Kool-Aid
1 cup boiling water
1 1/2 tbs oil

Directions:
1.  Mix flour, salt, and Kool-Aid until blended.
2.  Add oil and boiling water, mix with spoon until cool enough to knead.
3.  Knead by hand until color is blended.
4.  Store in air tight bag or container in the refrigerator.
