Kool-Aid Play-Doh Recipe

Kool-Aid Play-doh Recipe
1 cup sifted flour
3Tablespoons oil (I used canola, but it doesn't matter)
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup salt
1 package unsweetened Kool-Aid (We used grape, orange would be great for

A. Mix flour, oil, salt and Kool-Aid packet.
B. Add boiling water.
C. Stir together.
D. Knead mixture until it forms into a soft dough.
(This did not happen for Jackson and I, it was really wet! We added a little extra flour, still too wet...so I decided to cook the mixture over medium heat stirring constantly until it formed a ball! Then knead on table until smooth! IT WILL BE HOT! Wait until it cools enough so you can touch it! It turned out great and Jackson loved it!)

You will have an oil sheen to your hands when you play with this dough, this is the way it should be....Enjoy! Store in an airtight container, should last about a week.

This recipe is from one of my favorite books!

Hope you enjoy this recipe! I know we do!

That's how I got it and it was well worth it! Plus, I get inspirational emails from Dani too!

I'm still reading, but had to share a couple of excerpts from the book!

You were designed for wealth in mind.  We know that to be true because the Law of Desire states that if you have the desire for wealth, it is because you were given the design to have wealth......The desire is not for stuff; it is for freedom. ~Dani Johnson

Did you know that people are Gems?

Dani explains the personality types that go with each of the four Gems:

  • Sapphires

  • Pearls

  • Emeralds

  • Rubies

Reading this book, I have come to the realization that I am a Pearl through and through...always wanting to help others!

Dani talks about the 98 Percenters' way of thinking versus the 2 Percenters!

Jackson Dances to Gangnam Style!

I absolutely love being able to spend time with my son!

He can make me laugh at any moment of the day, even if I'm in a bad mood!

It's really hard when trying to discipline and he goes dancing through a gigantic puddle holding his pant legs up and going slow motion like he's in a movie!

There I am trying to tell him to come inside out of the rain and he's cracking me up that I can't even hold my mom face!!!
