Idea: Play dough!

This Is a Bunny or the Sears Tower
I have this fun recipe of Kool-aid play dough. It smells awesome, so good, but it's not edible. Well, it isn't toxic, but it won't taste good! It keeps for months in an air tight container and is fun to play with. I'll include the recipe, but feel free to google play dough recipes! There are so many all differing in colour, texture, and consistency. And some are even edible!

I tried this recipe with a non-white flour because I was out. And I must say it is best to stick with the white flour! It smelled funny and required adjustment in the amount of flour added. Still, in the end, it was play dough and fun!

My son began with the typical boy themes: airplane, dump truck, and a dead louse. When I took another peak at his creations a new turn of events: Fallingwater, Empire States building, Sears Tower, and the Guggenheim! Ah, he is his father's son... my son, the son of an architect! Go figure!

And now, for the recipe...

I Believe this is Fallingwater

Kool-Aid Play Dough

2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup salt
2 packages of unsweetened Kool-aid (best to be the same flavour for best scent and colouration)
3 tablespoons of oil
2 cups of boiling water

We Can't Remember What This One Is?
Mix all the ingredients together and knead into a ball. Store in an air tight container.
If it gets a bit dry, add a little bit of cold water and knead it into the dough. Should last three months!

Have fun being creative!
