  • Saute Pan or Pot
  • Mixing Bowl


  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 packets Kool-aid
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil *do not use olive oil to maintain color of kool-aid packet
  • 1 cup water


  • In a large bowl, combine all of your dry ingredients (flour, cream of tartar, salt, 2 Kool-Aid packets) and mix well.
  • Add the vegetable oil and water to a pot. Mix together.
  • Add the dry ingredients to your pot and mix well.
  • Cook on low to medium heat until dough starts to form and become dry.
  • Once a ball of dough starts to form and the playdough looks fully cooked, remove from the heat and let the dough cool before touching. If you added in extra Kool-aid packets, it may take longer to cook. Just keep mixing until the dough forms.
  • After the dough has cooled, knead it for 5 minutes to make the dough soft and smooth.
