Kool-Aid Play Dough

My kids love play dough and there's nothing like the homemade kind. 
 It's guaranteed to entertain them for hours! 

 Here's a fun recipe that was passed along to me when I was first married. A nice lady felt sorry for me and my (eh-hem) lack of cooking skills.  She kindly wrote down all of her favorite recipes for me, and the recipe for fruity play dough was included.  I can't tell you how many times this recipe has come in handy! 
Adding unsweetened Kool-Aid is fun because it not only colors the dough,
 but it also adds a little fruity scent that the kids love. 
Fruity Play Dough

1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 pkg unsweetened soft drink mix
1 cup boiling water
2 Tbls. vegetable oil

Combine flour, salt, cream of tartar, and soft drink mix in medium bowl.
  Add boiling water and oil.  Stir until a soft dough forms.  Knead until smooth.
  Store in airtight container.   
Ahhhh, I love those chubby fingers!  Hours and hours of endless play dough fun! :)
