This is so cool – I don’t think I will ever go back to buying store bought stuff again! It was easy, cheap, I know all the ingredients in it, it has a great feel, and it smells awesome!!

In medium saucepan put:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 2 TAB cream of tartar
  • 1 TAB oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 package Kool-Aid (whatever color/smell you want)
October 2011 467Cook over medium heat, mixing constantly until it forms a ball. This is quick – 5 minutes tops. Put on parchment or wax paper to cool. Squish into ball. Perfect texture, great consistency, and smells GREAT! I made cherry red above.


  1. We love doing this too! I actually need to make a fresh batch soon!

  2. NOPE! Does not discolor your hands! Stays fresh as long as I have had it....smells so good!

  3. How very cool!!! :o) Thanks for the idea!!

  4. I'm gonna give this a try, I made kool-aid playdough before but it was no bake and it was sooo sticky and yuck! I've had much better luck with cooked dough...and this is a similiar recipe to what I've used before (just not with the kool-aid) Here from Living Montessori Now...hope you'll stop by! :D

  5. Oooh I bet that smells LOVELY!!! :-)

    Thanks for sharing on Kids Get Crafty!


  6. I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award

  7. Kool-Aid playdough is a fabulous invention. I don't have any little ones around to make it for right now, but I'm definitely looking forward to making Kool-Aid playdough when I have grandkids! Deb @

  8. This is great and looks yummy! Thank you for sharing your ideas with us on The Sunday Showcase

  9. You can make it with pumpkin spice too for the holidays.

  10. we just made pumpkin pie playdoh using a similar recipe, but instead of adding playdoh you add pumpkin pie mix from the can (I used about 3 times this recipe and 1/2 a can of pumpkin pie mix) it smells so good, great consistency and it fits a fall theme

  11. Thanks for the tidbit on holiday playdoh - I'll have to try that!

  12. MMmmm! We are scheduled to make the play dough for next month at preschool. I think I'm going make this recipe. Thanks!

  13. I HAVE to try this! My kids will love it! Thank you so much for sharing this at Taking A Timeout Thursday!

  14. I agree - homemade playdoh is great, and it also keeps well.

  15. Do you know how much this recipe makes? Can I just get cream of tartar at the grocery store? Thanks!

  16. @Karabell
    It makes about 2 Playdough cans worth. You can find cream of tartar in the baking isle next to other spices. We just buy whatever is cheapest (usually the Target brand)


  17. This recipe ROCKS!!! I just made two batches and they turned out perfectly. Thank you so much!

  18. This is kind of a dumb question but I don't want to assume because you know what assuming does....TAB means tablespoon correct?

    1. no such thing as a dumb question =)

      TAB is Tablespoon.

      As a young person I always found Tab and teas too similar and was always afraid I'd mess up big time. So I make it very clear - TAB and teas
