Playdough brings back so many memories of my childhood. I just love the smell of it. Same with kool-aid. My mom would always make us a pitcher during the summer. Smells have a way of reminding us of these sweet childhood memories. This playdough recipe using Kool-aid definitely takes me back to the 80s.

Technically, this is an edible playdough. But unless your child is lacking sodium, I wouldn’t recommend eating it.

You only need 5 ingredients:

  • Flour
  • Salt
  • Kool-Aid packet
  • Water
  • Oil

Okay, so maybe I made 9. It was so quick and easy. I found these awesome cups on Amazon to store the play dough in. This recipe yields 6 of these 2 ounce cups. You can always just keep it fresh in a ziplock bag. I plan to give these to my son’s school as a happy! They also would make an amazing Valentine! “You are A-Doh-Able!”
