Kool Aid Childs Play

Edited to remove slide show Nov 17...

Who ever thought there were so many uses for Kool Aid? We actually don't drink it much around here because of the sugar content and the artificial colorings but over the past year I have found many other uses for it. I do like to hand out the single servings after I realized how much my Niece and Nephews love the stuff.

Below is a slide show of your little DD as she turned 3 yesterday. My good friend Jen sent some home made playdough to her for a bday treat. She had it packaged so nice and tucked into the container was a leaf cookie cutter, so very creative and this is the bday item she refuses to let rest along with the Dora noise maker from Grandpa thanks Dad and Jan :)

I am so torn about posting photos here on my blog I so love to share them. So I have changed my mind once again and I will be posting a few for you.

Jen's Playdough

1 Cup Flour
1 Cup Water
1 unsweetened pacakage of Kool Aid
1 T heaping Cream of Tartar
1/4 Cup salt
1 T Vegetable Oil
Heat over Med in a non stick skillet 'til not watery and forms a ball
Cool (cools faster if you spread it out)
The warm dough is great therapy for your hands :) so why not play along
Store in air tight container

I will share more Cool Kool Aid projects in the next few weeks...

Happy Stamp Day!
