Question: What do you get when you mix these ingredients with boiling water?
Answer: Playdough! Along with hours (well, at least minutes) of fun!
I managed to make six different colors using the old family recipe and six different Kool-Aid flavors...
The Cherry and Grape smell the best but the Tropical Punch is the most vibrant. Orange came out so-so, Pink Lemonade looks disturbingly fleshy, and Lemonade just looks like ordinary bread dough. In the future, I would love to experiment with alternative ways to color the playdough- like beet or berry juices. Each batch makes a ball about the size of a large grapefruit.
This also turned out to be a great opportunity for me (well, actually Sofie) to field test the infamous Play-doh Mat/Bag. So far, so good. There are still a few alterations I would like to make to my pattern but I feel okay selling the ones I already have made as they are.
I would also like to sell the playdough itself (or include a free blob of it with the purchase of a Mat/Bag) but not until I know approximately how long it lasts, whether or not it stains fabric, and whether I can find any other Kool-Aid colors or natural dyes to use.
