Okay, so it’s Tuesday and time for a Tasty Tuesday post, but this one isn’t edible. It does, however, make fantastic play-doh that doesn’t smell even remotely as bad as the commercial stuff. I seriously cannot stand the store-bought stuff – the scent makes me crazy and God-forbid it gets on my hands… it’s nearly impossible to wash off!
That said, you can leave this dough unscented and uncoloured, or use unsweetened packets of Kool-Aid™ to scent and colour it. It’s easy, cheap, and fun to play with.
- 2 c. flour
- 4 T. cream of tartar
- 2 T. coconut oil, melted
- 2 c. water
- your choice of unsweetened Kool-Aid packets™ for colours & scents
Combine the dry ingredients in a saucepan and stir well. Add oil, drink packet mix (for multiple colours, you’ll want multiple batches), and water – mix well.
Stir & cook over medium heat until the dough is done and is no longer sticky. It isn’t hard to tell when it’s ready – it will look like regular play-doh. Allow this to cool slightly before kneading – then knead on counter until dough is smooth, elastic-y, and uniform.
