S loves playdough and it’s always fun to make some from scratch. I love homemade playdough so much more than store bought. This time we decided to make pink lemonade scented playdough.
I use a playdough recipe that does not require it to be cooked that way S can help me, since that’s half the fun – all the measuring, pouring, mixing and kneading.
Pink Lemonade Playdough Recipe
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 tablespoon cream of tarter
2 envelopes of Koolaid Pink Lemonade (unsweetened)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup of boiling water
Mix flour, salt, and cream of tarter together. Add oil and water and mix until combined. Roll out onto a lightly floured surface and knead.
If the playdough is sticky knead in additional flour. *Test the temperature of the playdough before allowing children to knead.
Ways to Play
After making the playdough, S sat down at the table with cupcake liners, tea cups, paper straws and lollipop sticks.
She loved smelling the playdough while she played. I loved that the playdough looks and smells like pink lemonade.
Note: This playdough recipe is safe to be eaten, however it will not taste very good!
I think the smell does fade some over time, but a week later the play dough does still have its scent. I store our playdough in Ziploc bags or airtight containers
