My students love play dough, so I thought it would be fun to make our own play dough! Another teacher at my school shared this no bake recipe that I would like to share. This play dough smells great, is great for sensory, and the possibilities for play and learning with play dough are endless.
Kook Aid Play Dough recipe:
1 cup of hot water
1 Kool Aid package
1 tbsp of oil
¼ a cup of salt
1 ½ cup of flour
Add dry ingredients and oil into
a bowl. Using a spoon, stir in the boiling water. Make sure to warn students
that the water will be very hot! Students will stir until the play dough
becomes a ball then they can take the dough out of the bowl and knead. If the
dough is sticky add a little more flour.
Don’t forget to store play dough
in an air tight bag or container. We used big zip lock bags.
