- 1 and 1/2 cups of flour
- 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup of salt
- 1 package of unsweetened Kool-Aid
- 1 cup of boiling water
Simply mix the ingredients together, and knead the dough until it is a little firm, and no longer sticky. The dough is ready in minutes from start to finish, and the cleanup is minimal (from the mixing anyway - the cleanup from the playing is the normal horrific playdough mess!)
Save one package of the Kool-Aid for drinking. Give the kids the playdough, and a few random cookie cutters. Stick in an entertaining book on tape, and the children will think it's a party! At the very least, it should drive away a droopy afternoon.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
