We’re all about playing with playdough in our house because it’s a fun texture and compared to slime, it’s actually pretty mess-free. (Don’t get me wrong, we love slime too but playdough is a great way to mix it up a bit at times!)
The best part about playdough is that when you make it at home, it just tends to last a really long time. The key is getting it into an airtight container but if you can do that, it will literally last for weeks.
I’m also not a huge fan of using food dye to get colored playdough because it just stains anything and everything that it touches…hands, tables, faces when reaching up to scratch an itch…there’s no limit as to what a few drops of food coloring can do.
But, when you use this simple kool-aid playdough recipe, you’re not even going to have to get the food coloring bottles out of the cabinet. Instead, you’re going to get your playdough color from packets of kool-aid instead!
Once you make this DIY playdough recipe one time, you’re going to be hooked and never want to go back to your food coloring ways again!
