Earlier today I shared that Baby Bear and I played with Patriotic Playdough colored with Kool-aid for President's Day. In the past I have tried two recipes for Kool-aid playdough that I found on the Internet, but those attempts were unsuccessful. This time, I made my own, kept it simple, and it turned out great! How did I do it? I used one packet of Kool-aid (Tropical Punch for red) instead of food coloring and added extra flour (I estimate a half cup) to no-cook playdough! While still a little on the pinkish side, this is the best shade of red I've achieved yet, and it didn't take a whole tube of red food coloring. Plus, it smelled good!
