This Playdough recipe using Kool-Aid is another fun one to do with the kids. It smells so good, your kids may just eat it.
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:
- Kool-Aid packet
To Make this Play dough Recipe using Kool-Aid, follow these simple steps:

I wanted to try several colors so I made a few batches. 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!”
