Kool Aid Playdough

A little shop selling American goodies was opened in our town. When I came across Kool Aid there, I decided to try the playdough the US bloggers rave about.
Today we gave it a go. I tried the orange one. I was expecting the colour to be brighter but other than that, it turned out nice and smells lovely. Maybe I should have added two packets of Kool Aid?

Here is the playdough recipe that I use:

 2 cups of flour
1 1/2 cups of boiled water
1 cup of salt
2 tbs cream of tartar
2 tbs sunflower oil
1 packet of Kool Aid
 Mix all, add some more water if necessary. Enjoy playingtogether with little ones!

Derin loves making marks on playdough. Today I also gave him some straws that I have cut into smaller pieces. He enjoyed sticking them in the dough. This activity  is great for fine motor skill development.

Sorry for the blurry pictures but I love how focused he was :)
