Colorful, fragrant glue and play dough using Kool-Aid


Thanks to the ideas on “11 Mind-Blowing Ways to use Kool-Aid”, from, you can save time and money making fun, sensory stimulating glue and play dough!  Obviously, there are 9 other amazing uses, so look those up, too. 

I used to stir in food coloring to make colorful glue, but this is even better!  The colors are vibrant and it smells so yummy.  You will definitely have to tell the little ones it’s for sticking, not for eating 🙂

For the play dough, here’s the recipe and a pic of the finished products.  Again, no eating!  That goes for the teachers, too! 🙂

Mix the following in a medium pot:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 1 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 Kool-Aid packets
  • 3/4 cup water

Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring until the dough clumps together and reaches play dough consistency. Repeat the process for each color.
