Works great for all of those school projects. The nice thing about this recipe is it smells good. Most homemade play dough isn’t very nice to smell. This one kids love! (Just make sure they don’t eat it!)
1/2 c. salt
2 c. water
2 Tlb. vegetable oil
2 c. flour
2 tsp. alum (can skip this)
Kool-Aid or other drink mix packet
Boil salt in water until salt is dissolved. Add Koolaid for color. Add oil, flour, and alum. Knead until smooth. Keeps for about 2 months if wrapped.
