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.  :)

Sweet-Smelling Play-Doh
  • 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.
