My MIL's Play-Dough recipe

Forgive the double post if you happen to read my daughter's blog, as well as this one. Just figured I'd post for the "masses." (Ha ha HA!)

A little more advanced than the oatmeal+flour+water one I did a while back, here is my MIL's Play-Dough recipe:

2 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. salt
2 pkgs Kool-Aid
3 T. Vegetable Oil
2 c. water (boiling)

Mix dry ingredients together. Add oil and water. Stir well.

Add more flour (a little at a time) if dough is
too sticky. Knead until smooth. Continue to add flour if needed if dough remains sticky.

Keep in a Ziplock bag in your fridge.

Viola! Instant Play-Dough!

It's a more natural version of the sticky icky stuff you can buy at the store, so if they eat it it's definitely safe and non-toxic, and easy to make at home with pretty simple and mostly natural ingredients! Uhm, minus the Kool-Aid, but hey, I SAID MOSTLY!
